Abstract

Previous reviews of the literature dealing with diseases of the liver and biliary tract1 have made no special reference to textbooks and monographs dealing with the general subject of disease of the liver. At present this policy is abandoned to report the appearance during 1937 of the new textbook on hepatic disease by Eppinger.2 The book has been divided into two sections—general and special pathology, and the subject has been discussed in truly encyclopedic fashion. For the greater part the views expressed are those generally current, though these have been presented in the light of the author's personal experience in both the experimental laboratory and the medical clinic. This point of view has stressed the work of the German laboratories, but other important contributions have not been overlooked. This volume of 800 pages therefore will take its place as one of the standard reference books for advanced students
