This third volume of a series of authentic papers on orthopedic subjects upholds the high standards of its predecessors. The editors have been skillful in their choice of subject matter, grouping of clinical entities, and selection of contributors. The text is clear and especially well illustrated.

Chapters on sprains, ligamentous lesions, injuries of the menisci, dislocations of the patella, and diseases of the hip and shoulder contain accurate and practical information. Part 2 includes a discussion of giant cell tumors of bone. The sections dealing with x-rays and pathological lesions are especially good. The author, a pathologist, mentions treatment only briefly. Part 3 includes several interesting operative techniques applicable to long bone and joint lesions. Any surgeon having to do with orthopedic conditions should profit
