This book was written to serve as a guide and text for students and teachers of physical education, and most of the material presented was obtained through studies carried on over a period of more than twenty years at the International Young Men's Christian Association College at Springfield. There is an extensive bibliography, and frequent references to the literature on the subject are made. It deals largely with the effects of exercise and the various forms of athletic contests on individuals, both in regard to general constitutional effects and to the influence of exercise on the various organs, with particular emphasis on functional changes.
