The fourth volume of this well known handbook consists chiefly of descriptions and critical monographs dealing with the care of the defective and dependent members of the community. Measures of infant welfare are given full consideration, with especial emphasis on the combating of infant mortality. Then follow chapters on the care of young children, on children of school age, on the care of the morally and mentally defective, and on the community responsibilities toward the crippled, the blind and the deaf mutes. There is a comprehensive discussion of social insurance by Dersch and a special article on the p[ill]tion of the physician in the German insurance system.
The fifth volume treats of such topics as work, fatigue and rest; the influence of dwelling places on health; the effect of natural and "artificial" climate; the pathology, physiology and control of nutritional conditions, and a series of brief articles on the "sociology"
