This edition contains many changes in text and in thought from previous editions, and it represents a distinct advance over earlier volumes. The fracture treatment outlined is simply worded, direct and to the point, and amply illustrated. There are a minimum of those roentgenograms which so often are difficult to interpret when reproduced. The technique and methods explained are the standard ones generally in use throughout the United States. There is little attempt on the part of the authors to emphasize favored treatments of their own in certain fractures. They have in some instances described several methods of treating the same problem, but these methods are sound throughout and simply represent variations in technique that may be used to gain the same end.

This handbook is excellent for teaching purposes at the levels of both the medical student and the surgeon interested in orthopedics. It should be in the library
