The practicing physician is not apt to be interested in this 88-page pamphlet, which contains information culled from the annual reports submitted by 37 sovereign states and 51 non-self-governing territories.

Government officials concerned with the enforcement of laws relating to the manufacture, distribution, and sale of narcotic drugs are likely to be most interested in a publication of this nature. Persons concerned with the sociological aspects of drug addiction as a general problem undoubtedly would find it to be a useful reference for obtaining certain valuable and informative data.
