This handbook should be a welcome addition to the library of any doctor called to treat fractures, dislocations, or traumatic injuries to the skeleton. It is a concise summary of the most acceptable procedures for treatment of these conditions. The summaries are all the more valuable because of extensive references to articles, monographs, and books that pertain to the specific condition and that have appeared almost exclusively within the past 10 years. This handbook should supply a quick reference work for the orthopedic surgeon. It should also afford an excellent résumé of the best current therapy in this field for the general practitioner.
