This monograph has been written to offer the physician a reference work which may aid him in the management of peripheral vascular disease. For the most part this task has been accomplished. Some of the chapters, such as the one on peripheral vascular sclerosis, follow closely the teachings of Winternitz, are beautifully presented and are profusely illustrated. Other subjects, such as congenital vascular anomalies, aneurysms and varicose veins, are hardly mentioned. The surgical treatment of acute arterial embolism is not encouraged. The classification of peripheral vascular disorders is somewhat cumbersome and overlapping. While certain tests and apparatus which the authors have devised are treated in great detail, others are less favorably treated, which gives the unbiased reader a feeling of false proportions. The design and printing of the book and the colored plates satisfy the highest standards of medical publications.
