Forty chapters covering a wide range of topics: the history, philosophy, and support of research; designing research; generic research methods; reporting research; national characteristics in surgical research. The individual chapters will usually not serve as fully adequate guides for their topics but only as introductory surveys; most of them provide adequate bibliographies for more detailed reading. Many of the chapters are relevant to clinical research in fields outside of surgery. (EJH)
