This excellent monograph is well written, profusely illustrated, and contains an extensive bibliography. The indications and limitations of neck dissections are carefully considered as well as the technique of the dissection itself. The technique is well illustrated with colored drawings. The chapter on postoperative care and complications is highly recommended. This book should be in the library of everyone interested in neoplasia, particularly surgeons treating neoplasia about the head and neck.
