This symposium provides a series of essays by specialists in industrial disease who cover such subjects as the scope and organization of health service in industry, physical examination of employees, the relationship of industry to various systems of the human body, and also discussions of special topics like lighting, chemical poisoning and the hygiene and health of the railroad worker. The book is beautifully printed, authoritative and well illustrated, and each chapter has a suitable bibliography so that altogether it is one of the most useful reference works thus far made available. Finally, the book is supplemented by a most comprehensive index.
