This volume reports the proceedings of the symposium on glaucoma held at the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology in 1957. The participants included Drs. Bernard Becker, W. Morton Grant, Joseph S. Haas, A. Edward Maumenee, Harold G. Scheie, Kenneth C. Swan, Georgiana Dvorak-Theobald, and Lorenz E. Zimmerman. The editor has done an excellent piece of work. The book is well written and pleasingly presented. All phases of glaucoma are discussed. Little new material is presented, but the contributors have summarized their views ably. One of the most interesting and valuable parts of the book is the question and answer section. The editor has retained an air of spontaneity which adds to the interest. If one small criticism might be voiced, it is that questions and answers pertaining to one subject or group of subjects might have been included with that subject rather than placed at the end of the book.
