It is remarkable that so much new material can be incorporated in a revision of a book on a subject, diabetes, on which in the minds of many people information has been more or less static since the developments following the discovery of insulin. Joslin's standard book on diabetes in its present seventh edition has 756 pages of text, as compared with the sixth edition with 686 pages, which was published in 1937.
