Book Reviews Callander’s Surgical Anatomy. By Barry J. Anson, M.D., M.A., PH.D. (Med. SC.) and Walter S. Maddock, KS., M.D., F.A.C.S. Fourth edition, 1157 pages, 1047 illustrations. W. B. Saunders Co. Philadelphia, 1958. Price $21.00. This is a handsome new edition of a standard and widely accepted text. It is the fourth edition since its first appearance in 1933, and the second revision presented by the present authors. The origina format of Dr. CaIIander has been preserved, organizing anatomy into the topographic regions and organs of practica1 surgica1 interest. Structure, blood supply, innervation and lymphatic drainage are discussed together. The text has grown to include considerabIe basic physioIogy as well. The iIIustrations are profuse, numbering over 1,000, and of good quality, aIthough sometimes a IittIe smaI1. A number of fundamenta1 operative procedures are we11 drawn, but the emphasis is placed on structure and function rather than on changing operative technics. The result is a thoroughIy interesting presentation of basic anatomic information, in suficient detail for reference and organized for practica1 appIication. infrequency with which the problem is encountered in civilian practice. To the military surgeon it represents the best and most compIete treatment of a vita1 problem. How vita1 this problem is in wartime may be seen from the fact that the total number of cases of coId injuries of a11 types during WorId War II approximated 91,000, and the tota time Iost has been estimated as above seven and a half miIIion man-days. In the European theater in the winter of 1944-1945, the ratio of cold injury to battle injury in United States forces was above I :4. The lessons Iearned at such enokmous cost must not be IightIy disregarded and this voIume represents, therefore, a real contribution to civiIian surgery and a monumental contribution to miIitary surgery. If not read from cover to cover, it should at least be examined and an awareness of its avaiIabiIity we11 noted. ROBERT N. WATMAN, M.D; . An Introduction to Surgery. Edited by David H. Patey, M.S. (Lond.) F.R.C.S. (Eng.). 228 pages. Year Book Publishers, Inc. Chicago, 1958. Price $3.00. As is typica of our British colleagues, this book on the examination of the surgica1 patient is we11 written in a precise, clearly understandable manner. With the use of Iine drawings, the fundamentaIs of a comprehensive examination are expIained as part of genera1 medicine rather than as a technica art. The sections on metaboIic probIems, injuries to the care are head, and pre- and postoperative typical of the exceIIent quaIity of the book. The examination of the patient is then divided into organ systems for specific details. The more common minor surgica1 procedures are described under the heading of “Practical Procedures.” We find this book, with its we11 organized presentations, handy small size and inexpensive paper binding, to be an idea1 text for an introduction to surgery.

C., 1958. Price $6.25. of the This is the most recentIy published voIume in the series dealing with the offIcia1 history of the Medical Department of the United States Army in WorId War II. It is without doubt the most compIeteIy detailed work on the ground type of coId injury which has ever been published. It is probably as complete a book on any circumscribed topic as has ever been pubIished. To the civilian reader without combat experience in modern warfare it wil1 be impressive for its detaiIed anaIyses, objective treatment and logical conclusions. It is, however, somewhat heavygoing in view of the CHARLES V. MECKSTROTH, M.D. 129 American Journal oj Surgery, Volume 99. Januury. rpQo
