The author has written much on the subject of perinatal morbidity and mortality. This is a very complete helpful book and stresses the interdisciplinary approach to the problem. It emphasizes the importance of perinatal or neonatal mortality conferences involving obstetricians, pediatricians, pathologists, and others concerned.

This book is divided into fourteen chapters which survey the causes of perinatal wastage, and it beautifully illustrates the interdisciplinary approach.

For all persons concerned with perinatal problems, there is a wealth of statistical data and excellent bibliographies on most subjects. The particular experiences quoted are from the Johns Hopkins obstetrical service, and an appendix gives the perinatal mortality code sheet of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

From the pediatrician's point of view, there is a bird's-eye survey and bibliography of such subjects as prematurity, infections, and hemolytic diseases, with the stress on the interdisciplinary approach.

This book would be a very valuable addition to the shelves
