This book, intended for use by the public health student interested in the field of environmental sanitation, and as a guide for public health workers generally, is divided into two sections.

The first section treats the problems of milk sanitation; the second, those of food sanitation. Both sections are complete and valuable as text and reference material for specialists in milk and food sanitation and in allied fields. For pediatricians, the book is not of special interest, except for one who would like to know, for example, about safe milk production, the cause of undesirable flavors in milk and how to meet common objections to pasteurization.

In the section on food, the discussion in the appendix on "Food Poisoning and Infections" should be of interest to the pediatrician.

The work is well written and contains a good bibliography.
