This is the seventh edition of the book originally published as "Surgical Pathology." The author not only has changed the title but has rewritten the text. The contents, organization, and format are excellent. The illustrations are improved over those of previous editions. Dr. Boyd has directed the volume at the graduate student and has therefore emphasized clinical and practical aspects of surgical diseases.
