The purpose of this book is to offer a brief but comprehensive survey of so-called tranquilizing drugs. Chemical formulas, pharmacologic actions, routes of administration and dosages, general indications, dermatological applications, and undesirable side-effects are discussed adequately but succinctly, and a lengthy reference list is included. The book will be welcomed by those desiring information about this group of drugs without the haze presented by the lay press and puffery groups.
