The first edition of this volume appeared in 1929. Since that time enough new material has been developed to warrant a complete rewriting of the text; moreover, on the request of several nurses, the authors have added a chapter on impetigo. Some attempt has been made to refrain from the use of technical terms, although the very nature of the subject makes this difficult. However, each time a technical term is used a definition is provided. The volume is exceedingly practical, giving complete information as to aseptic technic and the avoidance of contamination. The chapter on the care of communicable diseases in the home is followed by a discussion of various infectious diseases in systematic order, beginning with definition and following with etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and nursing care. A good glossary and index complete the volume.
