This little book presents a readable discussion of certain air borne infections with explanations for the decline in incidence of diseases of this group. The book is not closely integrated; it places special emphasis on the experiences of Massachusetts. Neither of these remarks should be interpreted as fault finding, however, since the author makes no claim to exhaustive discussion. Apparently his main purpose in writing this book is to urge that preventive medicine be incorporated to a greater extent in medical practice and that it should not be operated as a detached specialty.
