While this work is chiefly concerned with a roentgen-ray study of silicosis, the authors have wisely introduced chapters on dusts, preventive measures, pathology, coincident tuberculosis and occupations. With the addition of two or three chapters on symptoms and diagnosis, the book would be of greater value to a wider circle of students. Illustrations of pathologic changes would also be helpful. The roentgenograms of the chest are illuminating, and there are good explanatory legends. The importance of silica as the causative agent in pneumonoconiosis is clearly set forth, as is the fact that proper preventive measures will go far to reduce the incidence of the disease.
