Abstract

This volume, appearing from the press of the Williams and Wilkins Company, is well printed and of good format. The author has attempted to write an extremely short treatise on clinical allergy, which is a commendable effort. Unfortunately for a book of this size, the material has not been well enough digested. The first part, covering the underlying principles of allergy, fails in its purpose because it does not give an adequate over-all picture of the immunology, chemistry, pathology and physiology necessary for a good working basis, particularly for a student untrained in the field of allergy. Many inaccuracies are present, and the author fails to note the existence of moot questions. The chapters on hay fever are perhaps the best and present a rather good description of the study and management of this problem. One might take exception to the large doses advocated for treatment, for too many constitutional
