Scholarly reviews of current topics in hematology have characterized this series, new volumes of which appear every two or three years. The editors have chosen questions in which "... the prime articles were either diffusedly distributed or clouded in controversy...," with the idea that authors might unravel and resynthesize these fields into a more comprehensible view. One chapter concludes thus, "This review has stressed these defects in knowledge and the conflicting nature of the data which are available. Its aim has been to serve as a guide for those who wish to study the many unsolved problems." These words might apply equally to other chapters.
The reviews will be of greatest value to the specialist or investigator with a deep interest in a particular topic. The average clinician, however, may find much which is pertinent to problems presented by his patients. There are many chapters of interest in this regard.
