This revision of Romanis and Mitchener's valuable textbook of surgery attempts, as did the earlier editions, to present an integral and yet complete description of the field of surgery. The authors have accented the scientific background of each group of surgical entities, as is shown in the individual sections on surgical pathology and anatomy. The problems of differential diagnosis and treatment, which are of paramount importance to both the student and the general practitioner, are adequately dealt with. Because of the discreet mention of methods that are now obsolete, the new edition is hardly more than twenty-five pages longer than its predecessor. The chapters on diseases of the ear, nose and throat, and those on radiology, radium treatment, anesthesia and fractures and dislocations have been rewritten to conform with modern advances. Recent progress has been incorporated into the sections on blood transfusion, the sympathetic nervous system, cerebral surgery, bone diseases
