Abstract

The second edition retains the logical, lucid presentation with the properly proportioned emphasis which characterized the first edition. It contains 250 more pages than the first edition and these pages are efficiently used to include an accumulation of newer knowledge. As one expected, and as it should be, a large portion of the additional pages (100) has been devoted to virus diseases. It is in this field of infectious diseases that the greatest contribution to our advancement has been made.

Several new chapters have been included in the new edition, and there is no chapter in which some minor or important change or additions have not been made. New tables and larger photographs and additional references are found. In some instances the number of references has been doubled.

A short 10-page section on chemotherapy devoted largely to antibiotics has been added. The scope of the book does not permit more space for this subject.
