This volume is one of a series on surgical practice, and is limited to the head and neck. The surgical anatomy and one operative procedure of proved merit are considered for each of the various regions. For the most part, fairly standardized operations are followed. The chapter on plastic work is good. A little more space might be given to operations on the thyroid. There is no mention of cervical rib, diverticulum of the esophagus, thyroglossal cyst or several other conditions not infrequently encountered. A few virtually obsolete operations are included. The illustrations are fairly well chosen.
