This book, edited by Peiper, contains 13 rather sketchy review articles regarding the newborn period. The papers were written by various authors. Each contribution is followed by a very brief bibliography, which often does not include references to key articles. This reviewer believes the book may be of only local importance. American pediatricians would be bothered by dogmatic statements regarding the necessity of a fixed feeding schedule or a sentence like the following: "The administration of artificial formulas is, in our opinion, for the newborn just as great a stress as a surgical operation." Very informative, however, is one chapter by Strüve on listeriosis of the newborn, which apparently is observed frequently in Leipzig and Halle.
