This monograph is a study of progressive muscular dystrophy in 104 families living in the vicinity of Freiburg, Germany. The material was collected in the period from 1938 to 1940, but publication was delayed by the war. The families are divided into two groups according to whether the dystrophy affected mainly the shoulder or pelvic girdle. These two groups are further subdivided on the basis of pattern of inheritance. There is an appendix of about 150 pages that gives fairly full case reports on 22 families with the shoulder girdle type of dystrophy and 64 families with the pelvic girdle type. The analysis of the case material from the genetic standpoint is carefully done, but there is little consideration of the biochemical or pathological features of the disease. The bibliography is extensive and includes the important publications from the European and American literature. The references are mainly to articles published
