The second volume of this well known English guide to operative surgery deals essentially with operations on the abdominal and genito-urinary organs. Though it presents chiefly the work and methods used in Guy's Hospital, more than one technic is usually given for any one procedure. The technic is described in step by step detail in simple, clear style and is well and adequately illustrated. Great stress is laid on the indications and complications, as well as on errors that may occur. The material is accurate and up to date. This book is a worthwhile addition to the library of any surgeon.
