A discussion of fractures well lends itself to the format of this carefully written and well-illustrated volume. The author has placed the illustrations on the left-hand page, and the accompanying text begins on the right. Although the author notes "the style is necessarily dogmatic and only the methods of treatment that I use myself are mentioned," he is being unduly harsh on himself. The roentgenograms and photographs of the more common fractures, dislocations, and sprains and their treatment are excellent and worthy of review by practicing physicians. The first sections of the book include histology of bones, classification of fractures, nomenclature used by the author, general treatment, some complications, and pathology. The main body of the book is divided into discussions on the upper limb, trunk, and lower limb.
