The physician in general practice or the one in some special practice finds little time in which to keep up his knowledge of the basic sciences on which his daily work is founded and with which it is essential that he shall be conversant. This volume is an especially well edited review of the year's more significant advances in pathology and immunology. It is comprehensive but still concise. It begins with a summary of Dr. Moon's work on shock, prefaced by Dr. Moon himself and included in the chapter on general pathology. The chapter on tumor presents a review of recent work on tumors and their genesis and is followed by chapters on the various contributions to pathology appearing during the year, classified under the different body systems, as renal, cardiovascular, etc.
The section on immunology includes not only material concerning diseases caused by bacteria, viruses and the higher parasites
