This volume is concerned wholly with epidemics occurring in England from the period 1854 to 1933. The epidemics include outbreaks of cholera, typhoid, diphtheria, scarlet fever, food poisoning and dysentery. In each instance careful analysis is made as to the mode of onset of the epidemic, the case incidence, the tracing of the spread of the disease and similar factors. The volume should be useful to public health officials and a valuable reference work for students in the field of preventive medicine.
