This interesting book is unique in covering extensively and in detail
a subject that heretofore has not been presented in an organized fashion.
The author, Prof Dr Henk Klasen, is a surgeon and burn specialist, formerly
of the University Hospital, University of Groningen, and member of the board
of the Dutch Burns Foundation. History of Burns begins
with a laudatory foreword by William W. Monafo, MD, a pioneer in burn treatment
who worked with Carl Moyer, MD, at Washington University. Nine chapters follow,
each ending with a summary and exhaustive list of references, most in German
Litwin MS. History of Burns. JAMA. 2004;292(19):2403-2408. doi:10.1001/jama.292.19.2406-a
