This year book abstracts those publications for the year 1950 in the fields of pathology and clinical pathology which seemed important to such experienced editors as Dr. Howard T. Karsner and Dr. Arthur H. Sanford.
The abstracts have been carefully prepared, are well written and well illustrated, and often are followed by short, pertinent editorial comments.
Three special articles are included which add to the book's interest: one by Hans Selye on the adaptation syndrome, one by W. Barry Wood Jr. on phagocytosis, and the other by Berta Scharrer on tumors in invertebrates.
The volume is small, readable, and admirably suited for quick reference. Its contents are about equally divided between pathology and clinical pathology. It deserves the popularity which it is almost certain to achieve.
