Abstract

This book is published in the same general style and size as the text-book on obstetrics. It is on the collaboration method and has the natural disadvantage of the overlapping, but it undoubtedly gives a broader view than single authorship. Such works, however, can not fail to be detrimental in the long run to the interests of individual authorship, as each school represented in the book forces the book on the students of the college; consequently there is a taste of commercialism about all books written on this basis that is objectionable. We have heretofore refrained from touching on this topic, but believe the time has come for doing so, as however great the merits of the book, it is not in accordance with that freedom and liberty of action on the part of our teaching faculties that should exist in this country.
