This monograph is truly a joy in that it is written in the clear, concise, logical manner that characterizes so many French authors. The various views held by operators in various countries are mentioned, and due credit is given to men of different nationalities who have worked on this problem. Contrary to what one usually finds in so many European works, the efforts and achievements of American authors are given full credit. Beginning with the definition of intrinsic carcinoma of the larynx, various types of operations are detailed. The author believes after a thorough investigation of the subject that hemilaryngectomy should be the operation of choice in a case of intrinsic carcinoma of the larynx. This operative procedure is well illustrated with a considerable number of pictures which are well drawn and show clearly the points to which they refer. The cases of hemilaryngectomy of Hautant are given in detail
