This small volume treats the subject of manipulative therapy in a concise, practical, easily understood manner. The author is an authority on the subject, being one of the leading orthopedic surgeons of the British Isles. He has written this book not for the trained orthopedic surgeon but chiefly for the general practitioner, who sees so many of these cases. The general practitioner is in keen competition with those who employ only manipulate therapy, especially the osteopath and the chiropractor. The author's purpose is to put into the general practitioner's hands a practical means of dealing with the common conditions that are amenable to manipulative therapy. In persuance of this purpose he has succeeded. The illustrations, though few, are excellent in character and reproduction. The author criticizes osteopathy and chiropractic in general vigorously, and rightly so.
