This is a composite work; the selection of authors for the various chapters, however, has been judiciously made and the result as a whole is satisfactory. A short introduction by H. A. Hare discusses the general subject of therapeutics and points out its dependence on and close relations to clinical medicine. H. C. Wood, Jr., in a chapter on "Modern Pharmacology," undertakes the difficult task of presenting the conclusions regarding the therapeutic value and use of drugs drawn from the investigation of chemical structure and from animal experimentation. A classification is made from a therapeutic standpoint and the subject is treated in such detail as to insure its marked practical value.
Ambrose Hunsberger, in a chapter on "Combination of Drugs," gives some valuable hints as to the prescription blank, the prevention of repetition, etc. The various forms in which remedies are to be administered are exhaustively described. In connection with
