The reasons for the revision of this handbook as stated by the author are, first, to provide new reproductions without the wavy arrows conspicuous in the first edition, and, second, to include generalizations descriptive of each entity. The original outline has been followed with the preparation of descriptions of the roentgen features, the soft tissues, regional bones, articular cortices and joint spaces. The book is divided into three sections: peripheral joints, joints of the spine and the temporomandibular joints. The normal development, malformations and pathologic changes of these joints are discussed.
The book is printed on good paper, and the type is easy to read. The reproductions of the films are excellent, and the pathologic changes are clearly marked by arrows. Each plate is described in detail, and the roentgen features characteristic of each disease are noted. There are a number of reproductions of histopathologic slides. These are discussed in
