This is an admirable presentation of one of the most difficult phases of surgery. Chapters include the mouth and tongue and the entire gastro-intestinal tract; the thyroid, pelvic viscera, brain and cord, skin, bones, muscles and lymphatics. The fundamental anatomic and pathologic phases of malignancy are completely covered. The text is beautifully illustrated both with colored plates of pathologic specimens and with illustrations showing the various operative procedures. There is, however, no pretense of making a surgical atlas of the book, since its scope takes in malignant disease of all parts of the human body. The greatest worth in the text lies in the intelligent exposition of the nature, manner of growth and spread of the various forms of malignancy. The essential facts of diagnosis and prognosis are carefully and completely described. This volume is undoubtedly one of the best clinical references on the subject published in recent years.
