This syllabus can be reviewed quite succinctly: Anyone wishing to use Dr. Wiener's nomenclature for the rhesus blood factors needs the present text as well as any others he can lay his hands upon. The book is well written, well illustrated, well printed, and worth the price if it dispels but one facet of the reader's confusion.
This reviewer does not wish to be a party in the argument over the use of the Wiener nomenclature versus that of Fisher. Such an amateur's view could only compound existing confusion to the further detriment of proper scientific thought. But when you have the opportunity to read this text, glance at pages 44 and 45 before you start. Heed the warning they give! The 37 different but related symbols used one or more times in these 73 lines of type are only part of the entire Rh-Hr story.
