This volume has been written by authors well qualified to discuss the various aspects of the pharynx. It is fortunate that the editor has selected collaborators of sufficient experience to make the general tone of the book a highly recommended text. The contents of the book have been arranged in two sections—"Basic Aspects" and "Clinical Problems." "Clinical Problems" deals with the following topics: (1) "Epipharynx"; (2) "Oropharynx"; (3) "The Uvula, Salivary Glands, and Neck"; (4) "Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Neoplasms," and (5) "Miscellaneous Considerations." Each chapter has its own editorial comment and bibliography. The index is adequate. As a guide to and as a discussion of all phases of pharyngeal disorders, this book is recommended for the viewpoints it presents and might well be read by all interested practitioners.
