ABSTRACT

This is a satisfying book to read. It consists of 22 chapters, each written by 1 to 3 well-known surgeons from university hospitals or large private clinics. The material, therefore, represents the thinking and practice of men of extensive experience and is authoritative. The contributors have obviously been selected because of their fields of special interest and proved ability. They represent many institutions and wide geographical distribution, which eliminates a provincial point of view.

The text covers abdominal surgery in a thorough manner from the anatomy of incisions to diseases of the anus. Each chapter has a pertinent list of references that is not so extensive as to bewilder the student. The subject matter is dealt with in a clear, concise manner, and verbosity is practically eliminated. The illustrations and the reproductions of roentgenograms are easily understandable and are of recent origin, in the main.
