This monograph is an excellent presentation describing the salivary glands. It crystallizes the known pathologic conditions. The illustrations are very critical and elucidative. The indications for surgery are clearly presented; nevertheless, surgical procedures are described very sketchily. More emphasis could be placed on the technique of various surgical operations. There is an extensive bibliography which covers every phase and discussion in this monograph. All in all, this is a worth-while presentation which will give a quick reference for a series of conditions that crop up rather frequently in every otolaryngologist's practice.
