As the publisher states, this book is designed to bridge the gap between the various pathologic and clinical disciplines dealing with trauma. The subject is thoroughly covered; after general chapters traumatic lesions of every system of the body are dealt with. As a matter of fact, the subject is treated so extensively that little space is available for individual subjects. No less important a matter than penetrating wounds of the thorax is, for example, discussed in one page. The illustrations are excellent and the bibliography representative.
