In the introductory chapter the author outlines the plan to be followed in the subsequent chapters, which include statistics, anatomic and pathologic considerations, and the technic of the examination. In the next six chapters the author discusses the different regions in which invagination of the alimentary tract occurs. It is an exhaustive, thorough and fundamental work enriched with excellent illustrations. It is of value in cases in which a contrast enema is administered and films are taken of the various phases of the reduction of the incarcerated portion when performed by bloodless manipulation. By this the work gains in clarity and the roentgenologist obtains a better understanding in the interpretation of the films. Otherwise the diagnosis of invagination is difficult. In the acute cases a thorough and complete examination is seldom possible because of the poor condition of the patient. The roentgenologist's experience in these cases is therefore limited. Bonomini
