ABSTRACT

Perhaps the chief criticism pertaining to this book is its title. If the term "contagious diseases" or "acute infectious diseases" had been used, it would undoubtedly have been considered in this country much more descriptive of the volume's contents. Beginning with "General Features of Infection" there are thirteen chapters, the final one relating to miscellaneous matters which include "Infectious Diseases and the Law." Most of the intervening titles represent primarily the various common contagious diseases, and a great deal of sound advice is presented in respect to diagnosis, treatment and related facts. It is apparent that the one who has written this book is not merely thoroughly familiar with his subject but that his observations are based on a broad personal experience. The plates in color are the accomplishments of the author as an artist. This is a practical book, concisely written, and printed with clear type on good paper.
