The editor has gathered a group of authors whose knowledge of their subject, and skill in delivery, is proven and well known. In each section of the book, the contributor supplies the reader with to-the-point background material, most of which is common knowledge to most practicing orthopedists. However, the expertise of the contributors becomes apparent, for over and above the background material, each section offers something special.
"Thumb Reconstruction," by Ahstrom, has an excellent bibliography. Fielding handles in his usual graphic manner the vexing problem of diagnosis in the incompletely ossified spine. Godfrey provides the reader with an answer to the immediate postoperative instability that plagues us all following major ligament reconstruction in the knee. Jackson furnishes a candid evaluation of the value of the technique and the demands made on the neophyte arthroscopist. Proper perspective for the surgeon interested in the complete reconstruction of the arthritic knee is supplied
