This concise, well illustrated and well written volume follows closely the teachings of Kanavel. Two thirds of the pages are devoted to infections and their sequelae, the remaining pages being divided between injuries and other surgical conditions involving the hand. In a treatise which covers briefly so wide a field, many dogmatic statements are necessarily made. That they are based on wide experience and thoughtful consideration of the problems involved will be obvious to the careful reader. Both students and practitioners will find the volume an excellent guide to the correct treatment of surgical conditions involving the hand.
