This volume keeps up the high standard set by the two which precede it. The first chapter, dealing with operations for the removal of tuberculous cervical nodes, gives plain indications for the treatment of these and outlines in a lucid way the knowledge of anatomy required in doing a radical operation for glands of the neck. Mr. Stiles has written this chapter largely from his own experiences and consequently only those procedures which have been found most valuable by him are included.
The chapter dealing with goiter is good, but does not add much to our present knowledge. The author states that he has seen marked benefit follow ligature of both superior arteries and one inferior artery in a very bad case of exophthalmic goiter, but that he considers it to be a dangerous proceeding, and is of the opinion that in acute cases it should never be employed.
