The purpose of this book is to describe the positions that bones usually assume when they are fractured or dislocated and to tell what constitutes acceptable satisfactory reduction, whether motion can be permitted, and the status of healing. The authors have accomplished their objectives most satisfactorily by the use of line drawings rather than reproductions of roentgenograms and by the brief but adequate descriptions that accompany the diagnostic illustrations. An appendix containing bone age charts and information about common appliances used in internal fracture fixation enhances the value of the volume. The bibliography is adequate, and the index is good. This book should be of value not only to the roentgenologist and general practitioner but also to the student and resident.
