The text of this new and stimulating volume brings into focus, very thoroughly, the latest as well as the formerly well-established operative procedures on the foot. It leaves the field of palliative pads, supports, shoes, and minor surgery of foot care usually included in textbooks on treatment of the foot, to present a precise and clear treatise covering all the well-established diagnostic and operative information necessary as a teaching reference as well as for guidance of the physician and surgeon who finds himself responsible for relief of foot problems requiring operation. The book is well illustrated, and the subject matter is well supported by a bibliography which indicates careful research. The author is to be congratulated on the accomplishment of this worthy endeavor.
