The author and his collaborators have written a timely book that fills the gap between the small handbooks and the larger textbooks that are now available on the subject of arthritis. This book, in the main, deals with collagen diseases to the extent of including pathology, clinical findings and therapy. The illustrations are excellent and numerous; and the bibliographies are most complete. The chapters on hypertrophic arthritis and gout are meager in comparison. There are also several chapters on physiotherapy and various home exercises for the crippled which are well illustrated and quite useful.
The authors avoid all controversial issues
