ABSTRACT

This book, written in a breezy, narrative style, does not purport to be a systematic study of the diseases characteristic of North China but is rather a record of the impressions of the author, a Dutch clinician with a worldwide reputation, during the first two years following his transplantation to the Peiping Union Medical College. These impressions are, however, in most instances carefully documented from the hospital records and are supported by many excellent illustrations and detailed case records.

Although Peiping is situated at a latitude of 40 north, about the same as that of Philadelphia, its diseases are largely tropical or semitropical, and one is struck, on first visiting the wards of the Peiping Union Medical College Hospital, with the preponderance of patients with acute infectious disorders. Dr. Snapper thus gives due prominence to relapsing fever, typhus and amebiasis, all of which lend color to the practice of medicine
