Therapeutics, although universal in scope, is nevertheless influenced greatly by the country in which it is practiced. This compendium of numerous therapeutic procedures, contributed by 28 authorities, presents primarily the British viewpoint. Although up-to-date and of great value for the British general practitioner, it has limited usefulness for the physicians of other countries except for comparative reference purposes. The book is self-indexing in that each subject is presented alphabetically. A comprehensive cross index is also included. The text is clear. The subjects are treated concisely with sufficient information for initiating interest but not enough detail for complete coverage.
