Some time ago this reviewer considered another and even larger book on the foot and ankle. At that time he raised the question of whether "topographic" monographs were the best way of dealing with disease. In the case of the foot, for example, there are the obvious surgical and orthopedic problems which have little in common with circulatory disorders or ringworm. Is the orthopedist the man to write about thromboangiitis obliterans, or does not the discussion of that subject belong rather in a book on vascular disease in general? In the present instance, this book, which after all deals mainly with surgical and orthopedic conditions, obviously fills a want, since this is a second edition. It is well printed and illustrated, and there are good bibliographies at the end of each chapter.
