Abstract

Volume II covers the systemic and special pathology of the alimentary, urinary, and nervous system and the liver, peritoneum, mesentery, muscle, eye, ear, skin, and appendages. Certain diseases which resisted the authors' systemic classification (including African horsesickness, hog cholera, toxoplasmosis, and tickborne fever) are covered in the appendix.

The rather unusual method of presentation of the material will elicit varying responses, and the over-all effectiveness of the arrangement cannot be judged until the book has been used extensively by workers in a variety of activities. Both volumes are sure to be received favorably by research workers and teachers—if not because of the unusual arrangement, then in spite of it, for this is indeed a notable production.

The important subject of neoplasia seems to suffer somewhat from the organ-system method of presentation. This may be justified, however, by the strong emphasis on the diseases of organs and systems which has been achieved.
