ABSTRACT

The present revision of this popular British treatise on hematology continues to maintain the high values of previous editions and, as the authors modestly state, is, "a reasonable presentation of the subject to the middle of 1953." The text has been increased by 87 pages, largely through the addition of valuable chapters on biochemistry and cytochemistry and new methods in technique, although it appears that nearly every page has been revised with new and more material. As in former editions, the text is unusually conserving of verbiage, carrying a high ratio of pertinent information to print on every page.

The text progresses logically, beginning with the difficult and controversial subject of blood formation through the primary blood diseases to the blood changes secondary to various diseases and ending with 113 pages of technique. The 20 plates and 106 text figures are unusually good, and the index is most complete. All
