This pocket-size volume is an excellent guide for nurses in the tropics and well fulfills the aim of the author to provide a practical and authoritative work to place in the hands of travelers in tropical regions. After a brief Introduction the book is divided into the following sections: Personal Hygiene in the Tropics, Diseases, Technique, Care of the Eyes, and a Glossary. The section upon disease encountered in the tropics considers all of the important diseases met with in such localities in a brief but comprehensive manner and embodies all of the essential facts which would prove to be useful to nurses or travelers and the data given are correct and up-to-date in most respects. The section devoted to Technique includes the technique of blood examinations, blood tranfusion, bowel lavage, test meals and intramuscular and intravenous injections. There are also included a useful glossary and tables of weights and measures.
