Through its four editions since 1931, this book has kept the characteristics intended by its author, namely, an edited reflection of the teaching in the surgical department of the Harvard Medical School developed by Harvey Cushing and his associates. Accordingly it is an almost unique weld of the historical development of surgery, the dogmatism necessary for student teaching and present surgical beliefs.
The present edition differs from the third by the inclusion of chapters on Amputations and Plastic Surgery. This new material is well up to the standard of the remainder of the book.
