This is the seventh edition of the book originally published as "Surgical Pathology." The author not only has changed the title but has rewritten the text. The contents, organization, and format are excellent. The illustrations are improved over those of previous editions. Dr. Boyd has directed the volume at the graduate student and has therefore emphasized clinical and practical aspects of surgical diseases. He has brought the material up to date and has included many new features not present previously in his volume "Surgical Pathology." Each chapter has a table of contents, and a well-chosen bibliography is presented at the close of each chapter. In this text discussions of pathologic physiology as well as the relation of symptoms to lesions are found.
The text will not only be of benefit to the surgeon but will prove of interest and convey considerable information to the internist. The latter is well acquainted
