This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

The writer reviews this book with enthusiasm. It gives a very thorough, studious and scholarly review of the entire field which its title and sub-titles indicate. So complete and comprehensive is it, that a review dealing with single phases of the subject seems inappropriate. Whether etiology, pathology, diagnosis and testing, microbotany or treatment, happens to be the reader's quest, he will find here a critical monographic presentation of the desired subject matter. Certain minor points will be questioned by other workers in this field. In fact, the three authors acknowledge the inevitable lack of complete accord which exists among themselves.
