This edition continues to reflect, with some improvements, the new program of the Council on Drugs, which embraces the evaluation of scientific data and reports of investigations by competent consultants and the members of the Council. A concise statement of the principles governing the evaluation of the drugs described is given in the preface. The book includes cumulatively all Council monographs on commercially available evaluated drugs that have appeared in The Journal and have not been included in the book for more than 20 years. The 1958 edition contains 48 new monographs on drugs and, altogether, monographs for more than 600 agents. Trade names are listed at the end of each monograph and in the index as a further aid in prescribing. A generic listing of available preparations and their strengths and sizes is provided with each monograph. Among the more important of the new monographs are those for chlorisondamine
