The material in this book is the outgrowth of an elective course of lectures given to senior medical students. The aim is to correlate and arrange a mass of data that is otherwise scattered throughout the literature. The author is associate professor of gynecology and obstetrics at Yale University School of Medicine. He fully recognizes the responsibility of the obstetrician for the neonatal condition of the child, discussing the relative values and dangers of various obstetric procedures and of the use of anesthetics and sedatives. He also urges the obstetrician to cooperate in efforts to establish breast feeding.

The chapters on the immediate care of the newborn and on the physiology and development of the newborn are unusually well written, and, although some controversial material is presented, it is not confusing. The technic of breast feeding, the pathologic aspects of lactation and the methods of artificial feeding are fully considered.
