This publication, dealing mainly with local anesthesia in dentistry, is bound to establish itself as a classic in the dental literature. The book is well organized, very clearly illustrated, and covers the subject matter in meticulous detail. There is a strong emphasis throughout the book on the correlation of basic sciences with clinical understanding and technical performance. An excellent example is the lucid description of the specific pharmacologic actions of the esters and amides as related to clinical applications.

With contributions from both dental and medical authors, this volume includes such subjects as sedation and local, block, and general anesthesia, as well as appropriate instruments, equipment, and supplies. Needless to say, each dental block is described and illustrated in great detail.

Since dentists are the acknowledged masters of intraoral block anesthesia, this book is particularly recommended to the otolaryngologist who has the need to improve on these commonly used techniques.
