This is a valuable compilation of information and statistics from all over the world about tuberculosis by an author who has had extensive experience with this disease in Britain and also with such international organizations as UNRRA and more lately, the World Health Organization. The available knowledge about the problem of tuberculosis in all nations where information is available is presented largely in a factual manner. The author interjects few personal opinions, and when he does they are well documented. This book is of special interest to the statistician, the sociologist, the epidemiologist and the public health administrator.
