This is a concise and eminently practical book on the diagnosis and modern treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. Approximately half the book is devoted to each of the subjects discussed. The consideration of treatment includes all modern surgical procedures, with the author's experienced estimate of their relative value. Care of the convalescent, that most important part of therapeusis, is sensibly outlined, as well as the principles of prevention. The roentgenograms are numerous and unusually clear. Not the least valuable is the bibliography designed as an aid to collateral reading. Altogether, this is an excellent handbook for students and practitioners.
