The surgery of the mediastinum and thoracic duct was at first intended as a chapter of the Kirschner and Nordmann Surgery but was published as a monograph instead because of its size. The book is well illustrated, and each chapter terminates with an exhaustive bibliography. The general construction of the page, the style and the way in which the material is handled is similar to the rest of Kirschner and Nordmann's Die Chirurgie. The trite phrase "the book is a veritable mine of information" is the best description the reviewer can use. It will be valuable addition to any collection of thoracic surgery.
