The author has been in service on board ship and in naval stations, and has taught naval hygiene in the United States Naval Medical School. The book is based on the need for a text of this character as shown by the work of the classes in the United States Naval Medical School. The problems on board ship are different from those of Army camps. Thus the question of air aboard ship and of ventilation assumes far greater relative importance than in military camps. In the same way the question of water supply and sewage disposal aboard ship are special problems. In fact, all of the problems of hygiene and sanitation in the Navy are distinctly special in character. The civilian physician called to active service in the Naval Medical Reserve Force will, therefore, find this textbook of great value. It is well illustrated, quite elementary and very practical.
