This is an almost complete revision of the previous editions. The chapters on physiology, disorders of menstruation, uterine hemorrhage and sterility have been completely rewritten. This well written and concise volume is an excellent textbook for students. However, the space devoted to operative gynecology might well have been devoted to an elaboration of certain chapters that have suffered by their brevity. The section on operative procedures is so incomplete and poorly presented that its omission would have been a distinct improvement.
