This monograph is written in an easy, understandable style. It contains abstracts of all the worthwhile literature on whooping cough. It covers epidemiology, immunology, bacteriology and the preparation of various endotoxins and exotoxins. It also describes the clinical manifestations of the disease. The author has attempted to make a critical analysis of the literature and gives his own interpretations and evaluations of the various studies. In this he has succeeded very well. The illustrations are excellent. It is an invaluable book for the investigator and is equally valuable and practicable for the practitioner.
