In the foreword the author states that he does not hope to present an exhaustive study of heart disease, but attempts merely to outline his own views on this subj ect.
The first volume, in a series of three, deals with the physiologic, diagnostic and functional pathologic aspects of diseases of the heart. All are discussed in a clear and understanding manner, with a good correlation between theory and practice.
A 34 page bibliography, in which American authors are well represented, concludes the volume.
The two subsequent parts of this work on heart disease are to be entitled "Clinic on Coronary Disease" and "Therapy of Heart Disease."
