It would seem that there are enough textbooks on community hygiene without adding any more, and yet this volume makes an instant appeal because of the comprehensiveness of its scope, the clarity and conciseness with which the subtopics are handled, and the logical organization. The book is well and profusely illustrated and the chapter bibliographies are particular good. It has a good glossary and an adequate index.
