Dr. J. C. Geiger, editor of this yearbook, has wisely selected abstracts from great numbers of publications and makes personal comment on almost every one of the abstracts of importance. The book covers every section of interest in modern public health. There is special emphasis on industrial hygiene, as well as discussions of borderline topics like health education, child hygiene and mental hygiene. The book is highly suggestive and the 296 editorial remarks are a fine commentary on modern ideas in public health.
