This history of the specialty of otolaryngology had for its stimulus the recent International Congress of Otolaryngology. What started out to be an independent enterprise of each author has been blended into a fine little book, in which the field of otolaryngology is discussed in a readable manner. The titles of the chapters are Introduction; Ancient History; The Middle Ages and the Renaissance; The Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries; Otology Becomes a Science; The Education of the Deaf; Laryngology in the Nineteenth Century, and Modern History. There is both a bibliography and an index. The development of the specialty and the available literature and the progress in the field from the earliest times to the present are covered. This readable book should be of interest to all otolaryngologists.
