Blakiston's Son and Company, Phila- delphia. Price, in cloth, $1.00; in paper, 60 cents. </p><p>Miss Delano is well known to the nursing and medical professions and needs no endorsement. The first edition of this book, under a slightly different title, was prepared by Miss Delano in collaboration with the late Miss McIsaac. The second edition has been revised by Anne Hervey Strong, Professor of Public Health Nursing, Simmons College, under the personal direction of the author and of the National Committee on Red Cross Nursing Service. Valuable assistance and suggestions are acknowledged from Dr. Rucker and Dr. Clark of the U. S. Public Health Service; Dr. H. M. McCracken of Vassar College; Professor Isabel Stewart of Teachers College; Anna C. Jamme, and other efficient workers and teachers. To quote from the introduction: "The American Red Cross, recognizing the part that women can and should play in preventing sickness and in building up the health and </p><p>vigor of the nation, has added to its larger patriotic services this </p><p>elementary course of instruction in hygiene and home care of the sick. The object of the book is to supply a little knowledge of sickness </p><p>which, though limited, may yet be safe." The book is the official text- book for organized Red Cross classes. </p><p>THE AMERICAN HOSPITAL OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. By Edward F. Stevens, Architect. Illustrated. Architectural Record Pub- </p><p>lishing Company, New York. Price, $5.00. </p><p>This volume is a treatise on the development of medical institu- </p><p>tions, both in Europe and America, since the bginning of the present century. Mr. Stevens is an architect of known ability and one who has devoted his entire practice to hospital construction. He knows </p><p>intimately the foreign medical institutions and can therefore give a most interesting study and comparison of hospital architecture and </p><p>equipment. Books on modern hospital construction are rare in this </p><p>country; this being one of the first to be published. A most useful book, not only to those contemplating building but also for all hospital administrators. </p><p>488 </p><p>BOOK REVIEWS IN CHARGE OF </p><p>GRACE H.
