John Evarts Tracy, Professor of Law (Emeritus), University of Michigan, has written "The Doctor as a Witness" to fulfill a demand by doctors interested in the subject. With clarity, conciseness, and easy readability the contents cover the basic knowledge pertinent to the doctor in medicolegal situations that range from a definition of "legal proceeding" to "proposed improvements in the law as to the use of expert medical testimony." All this is done in 217 pages that are indexed for quick reference. This is an excellent primer to acquaint doctors with their own obligations and perogatives in legal proceedings.
