In this monograph on the cervical spine, the author has presented in detail a wealth of new information. The sections that cover the degeneration of the cervical spine and its sequelae and the chapters concerned with the developmental history and anatomy of the cervical spine are especially good. Although Dr. Exner's views on the possible connection of osteochondrosis to such functional disturbances as asthma, hypertension, and gastrointestinal symptoms are highly speculative, they are interesting. The author has a tendency to be repetitious, and his style of presentation is at times heavy, but these minor faults do not detract from the value of this book to anyone who has a good reading knowledge of German.
