This small book is full of good material. It is composed of a six article symposium which appeared in the British publication Practitioner for June 1940 and two additional articles. Each of the eight authors is a national authority; five are known internationally. The handy booklet presents the latest thoughts of recognized experts on highly specialized subjects. Illustrations are sparse. The index helps the busy practitioner in an emergency. The subjects covered are "The Diagnosis and Treatment of Fractures and Dislocations of the Pelvis and Hip Joint," "Common Fractures and Dislocations of the Knee and Long Bones of the Lower Limb," "Fracture-Dislocations of the Ankle Joint," "Common Fractures and Dislocations of the Clavicle and Shoulder Joint," "Fractures and Dislocations at the Elbow," "Fractures and Dislocations of the Wrist and Hand," "Head Injuries" and "The Treatment of Spinal Injuries."
