This monograph presents in clear, concise and readable form the essential facts of cardiac pathology, the subject being approached from the side of pathology rather than from that of the clinical manifestations, diagnosis or treatment. Cardiac diseases, as a rule, are clearly traced to anatomic lesions, and the proper emphasis is laid on the resulting disturbance of function. The subject is presented in the form of eight lectures. Facts arc clearly distinguished from theory, animal experiment is often adduced in support of the views advanced, and a knowledge of the clinical manifestation of heart disease is evident. The author shows familiarity with the literature. There is a lack of discussion of some of the more recent work on the heart, which omission is frankly stated in the preface. An extensive bibliography is found at the end of the work.
