It is not easy to present in a condensed form that is readily understandable the essentials of so large a subject as the treatment of fractures; yet this has very largely been achieved by the authors of this handbook. Within this small volume, valuable and generally very sound advice on the treatment of most of the common fractures will be found, and discussions are unencumbered by long recitals of methods that have merely an historical interest. The text is clear and adequately though not lavishly illustrated. A special feature is the large number of excellent line drawings. For its kind, and considering the limitations imposed by space, this small volume is recommended particularly to students who may wish to review the subject rapidly for examination purposes. Its value to practitioners unversed in the management of fractures is, however, doubtful.
