The author has revised this work to include the extensive progress of the past decade in the diagnosis and treatment of foot conditions. The anatomy, physiology and examination of the foot are thoroughly described, and the mechanism and causes of mechanical imbalance emphasized. Weakfoot, flatfoot, clubfoot, Pott's paraplegia, cerebral paralysis, infantile paralysis, tuberculosis and gonorrheal disease are thoroughly described, and a chapter is devoted to "other aliments," including numerous important affections of the foot. There is also a chapter on foot apparel, which could be more extensive. Although a few of the opinions are open to interrogation, the book is well worth the study of the general practitioner and surgeon as well as that of the orthopedic surgeon.
