This small book presents a practical description of the variations and abnormalities of the bony pelvis in relation to labor and describes certain diagnostic procedures by which pelvic morphology and pelvic capacity can be ascertained. Thoms has devoted a large part of his career to this subject. He was a pioneer in urging that all primigravidas have a combined clinical and roentgenologic survey of the bony pelvis. The book is the culmination of the author's numerous contributions to the literature in the past 25 years. It is well printed in clear type, and most of the illustrations have been clearly reproduced. A few of the line drawings lack the professional touch. Nevertheless, the book is a classic and should be diligently studied by all obstetricians and roentgenologists.
