Readers of this newly published book will find it an excellent source of references for studying both clinical and laboratory aspects of uveitis. It represents a translation by Golden and Givoiset of the 1970 annual report made to the French Ophthalmological Society concerning uveitis. It is comprehensive and detailed, and, therefore, very long. The casual reader is advised against attempting to read it from cover to cover, but rather is advised to use it as a source of information on particular subjects.

The book is divided into five parts dealing with immunopathology, clinical and anatomical studies, diagnosis, etiology, and therapy. Each part is subdivided into a number of chapters, representing the contributions of single authors, foremost among which are Doctors Campinchi, Faure, Bloch-Michel, and Haut.

The basic subjects—hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, anatomy of the uvea, etc—are extremely well covered, and the chapters on those subjects are, incidentally, very well illustrated. Each chapter
