This profusely and beautifully illustrated book seems to be just what the general physician as well as the proctologist can use to great advantage. It is not primarily a book on surgery, and there are no long detailed discussions of surgical technic. However, diagnosis, indications and preoperative and postoperative treatment are fully discussed. Of particular value are the comprehensive discussions of pruritus, hemorrhoids, polyps, stricture and other common conditions which so often require attention. Comprehensive bibliographies after each chapter are a feature.
