Dr. Charles Painter has well edited this 1945 edition, with current articles of interest to the pediatrician and the general surgeon as well as to the orthopedic and industrial surgeons. Considerable space is given to the subjects of arthritis, osteomyelitis and infantile paralysis. The editor is encouraging to the many authors whose articles are presented, yet in the fine print throughout the book are found valuable advice and warnings in regard to the various methods of treatment advocated.

The well illustrated articles and the editor's notes, if studied carefully, will repay the reader of this worth while résumé of fracture, orthopedic and industrial surgical problems that have been encountered in the Army, in civilian life and in the manufacture of chemicals and war equipment.
