This handbook was compiled particularly for the general practitioner and medical students. The authors have presented the simplest principles and methods which they have found satisfactory for the treatment of fractures. The excellent illustrations by Dr. Harold Laufman give a graphic presentation of the technic described in the text and make the subject matter more readily comprehensible. The authors follow the methods of treatment of fractures and dislocations described in the modern textbooks of Boehler, Campbell, Key, Conwell, Magnuson, Scudder, Speed and Watson-Jones. The subject matter is condensed and is written to substitute for the larger textbooks. The general considerations of treatment of fractures are limited to the essential facts. Then fractures are taken up according to the parts involved, and the authors' method of choice is described. In some of the difficult fractures the method, of necessity, involves technical difficulties which it would be hard to expect the student
