This book is the fourth volume in Tubiana's series on the hand. The book covers atraumatic neurological conditions of the hand and upper extremity, including nerve compression, brachial plexus surgery, and tendon transfers. The purpose is to provide a multidisciplinary approach to neurological problems of the upper extremity. The objectives are important but are not completely met. The scope and detail of the book are variable. There are single chapters that are encyclopedic reviews of the literature, whereas others present an author's own experience with a single procedure. The book is oriented toward the hand surgeon or advanced hand fellow. This is not a book for orthopedic surgery or plastic surgery residents learning basic hand surgery. The contributors are outstanding and internationally represented. The drawings in the book are generally excellent and informative. Some of the x-rays and clinical pictures are not well reproduced and are difficult to visualize. The table of contents is easily referenced. The index is rather short for a book of more than 800 pages. This treatise is a fascinating work on neurology of the upper extremity. Because of the broad international representation of the contributors, the scope and detail of the chapters are variable. The book contains much information, especially from European authors, that will be extremely interesting to American hand surgeons. However, the book is not as useful as a reference text.
