This second edition appears about 11 years after the first and is completely revised and largely rewritten. New entities described include chondromyxoid fibroma, aneurysmal bone cyst, juxtacortical low-grade osteosarcoma, and malignant angioblastoma. "Emphasis has again been placed on the role of radiation therapy, not only as a palliative agent or for inoperable tumors but under certain conditions even as a preferred method of treatment."

The various sections deal with classification, etiology, and diagnosis; benign tumors and tumorlike lesions of bone; primary malignant tumors of bone; tumors involving bone by extension; metastatic tumors involving bone; tumors of bone in special localities; surgical treatment; radiation therapy; constitutional therapy; and lesions of the skeletal system that may simulate neoplasms of bone. This list indicates the completeness of the coverage. Microscopic pathology has purposely been given little space as this aspect of the subject is well covered in other texts.
