This is the second edition of a highly successful, concise, and clearly written monograph, eminently suitable for the general surgeon and also the general practitioner doing his own surgery. Perhaps the most attractive feature of the book is the detached, unbiased attitude of the author toward accomplishing the objectives of treatment. While he describes his own experience precisely, he calls attention to controversial points. The author's enthusiasm for femoral vein ligation for postphlebetic sequelae is not shared by this reviewer. The style is simple and direct, the illustrations are many, and the printing is excellent.
