This book represents the transactions of the 11th meeting of the Club Jules Gonin in Barcelona, Spain, 1978. The last few meetings of this association have been published by S Karger AG in this series and are interesting to read even for somebody whose primary interest is not retinal surgery. Most of the contributions are in English, the minority are in French, and a few are in German.
The introduction is a moving homage by E. B. Streiff to the late Hermenegildo Arruga. Arruga was not only an immediate pupil of Gonin but was regarded as his main strategist for the South of Europe, while Weve of the Netherlands fulfilled the same function in the North.
This is followed by an obituary by Prof Meyer-Schwickerath for the late ex-secretary of the Club, Dr René Dufour, who for many years was one of its moving spirits.
