Professor Dudley's work is the result of long years of study and observation and this fact must carry with it a certain authority. The book fairly covers the field of gynecology, and is divided into five parts. Part I is given to the general principles of gynecology, such as psychologic periods in the life of women, aseptic and antiseptic diagnosis, local treatment, major and minor operations, drainage and after treatment, relations of dress; Part II is given to inflammations of the female generative organs, including the pelvic passage; Part III to tumors, tubal pregnancy and malformation; Part IV discusses traumatisms, both nonpuerperal and puerperal, and Part V displacement of the uterus and other pelvic organs.
The teachings of the author are sound and conservative; the illustrations are clear, many of them original, and the book as a whole constitutes a valuable contribution to the subject. The author's personal contributions to
