This small book is not intended for the specialist but for students, interns, and general practitioners. It does not describe operative techniques or give in detail the care of serious injuries. It does, however, in simple language and with the help of a substantial number of sketches describe the problems commonly encountered when one is faced with fractures and dislocations. It admittedly is not intended to replace more detailed books, and this the author admits. But it is a handy compendium for quick reference.
