3rd edition, by William Arthur Hagan, D.V.M., D.Sc., Professor of Bacteriology and Dean of the Faculty; and Dorsey William Bruner, D.V.M., Ph.D., Professor of Bacteriology, New York State Veterinary College, Cornell University. Comstock Publishing Company, Inc., Associated with Cornell University Press, Ithaca, New York, 1957, 968 pp
On pages 535 and 536 of the first volume of this Journal, published in 1952, this reviewer stated, relative to the 2nd edition, that “The Infectious Diseases of Domestic Animals by Hagan and Bruner is highly recommended for students as a text and reference book in microbiology of infectious diseases of animals, and to others interested in various phases of these diseases. It is also a useful and ready reference for those interested and concerned with human infectious diseases, especially those transmitted from animals.” The reviewer considers the 3rd edition worthy of similar strong recommendations and high praise. In the latest edition there are no important changes in the arrangement and treatment of the seven parts and 46 chapters of the text. A large volume of new and important information has been reported in the literature since the earlier edition was published.
In 968 pages of text, illustrations, references,and index, the book contains as much as could possibly be included and make it as lucid and as readable as Hagan and Bruner have done.
