In format and general appearance, this book matches the previous ones of this series. Its first portion is an eloquent tribute to the late Dr. Dallas B. Phemister. The second section deals with affections of growth centers, and each chapter within this section deals primarily with specific epiphysial lesions. Throughout this section the x-ray reproductions, in general, are not as good as in previous volumes, and the editors should insist on better roentgenographic reproductions. There are some mildly controversial statements, but these should stimulate the readers to further investigation. The next section is a continuation of the symposium on pathologic physiology of metabolic bone disorders; the first portion appeared in volume 9. This symposium is rather complete, and the bibliography is extensive. The last section considers general orthopedic problems. Most of these are well presented. In general, this volume maintains the high standards that have been set by this publication.
