This volume is a publication of the Josiah Macy, Jr., Foundation and aspires to bring together current knowledge and opinion regarding the changes in the blood vessels generally termed arteriosclerosis. It is a compilation of ideas from various sources: The authors are drawn from Europe and England, as well as from different sections of this country.
The subject matter is well arranged, beginning with a historical review by Dr. Esmond R. Long of Philadelphia of how present knowledge regarding arteriosclerosis has developed, and ending with a critical review of the contents of the book by Dr. Alfred E. Cohn of New York. Throughout, one finds chapters on the different phases of vascular disease written from various points of view by thoroughly competent authorities.
On the whole, the book is excellent for reference. It is well printed and illustrated; each chapter is clearly written, and the literature is covered adequately. All
