Another year has passed, and another Year Book has come to pass. The special article in this volume concerns allergic eczematous contact dermatitis. The subject is reviewed at length, in fact a bit too much so for the general practitioner toward whom the article is aimed. The dermatologist, however, will find the material to be full, pertinent, and authoritative. The format is similar to that of other years, both in style and in the emphasis given to the various phases of dermatology. Some of the abstracts might profitably have been condensed, but by and large the selection of material for abstracting was done with care. The editors' practice of critically commenting on some of the articles was done with restraint and in the interests of accuracy, and so the book retains its position of a most valuable review and reference work.
