This new volume presents some of the lectures that were given before the American Academy of Orthopædic Surgeons in February, 1957. It is another excellent book in their annual series. It will be of value as a teaching and reference book on the resident level, but it is perhaps too technical for the medical student. Its great value lies in the completeness with which one facet of a surgical problem is handled. This is particularly true in such articles as Congenital Dysplasia and Dislocation of the Hip in Infancy, Proximal Femoral Osteotomies, and Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia. There is a wide range of coverage on conditions of the spine and the upper and lower extremities. Of special note are the articles on local manifestations of systemic diseases, or diseases involving the skeleton, which provide interest to the roentgenologist, the pediatrician, and the internist, as well as to the orthopedist.
