Forensit Medicine and Toxicology


    THE sixth edition of Dixon Mann's “Forensic Medicine and Toxicology,” which ranks among the foremost English text-books on the subject, is the second to be edited by Dr. William Brend. It has undergone a revision which brings it completely up-to-date; a larger page is used than in previous editions; and the number of pages is reduced. The section on insanity has been rewritten on the basis of modern psychiatrical views; and that on toxicology gives additional information on poisoning by salvarsan, tetrachlorethane, T.N.T., and the gases of warfare, and on the infections formerly ascribed to ptomaine poisoning.
