This convenient volume is a continuation of the author's previous book on the evolution of preventive medicine. Professor Newsholme writes succinctly and directly of the prevention of specific diseases, including all the common infectious disorders, of physical and social conditions associated with health such as air and ventilation, fog, smoke and sunlight, housing and occupation, and of physiologic conditions of health. In the last named section he considers goiter, deficiency diseases, rickets, scurvy and alcoholism. Obviously it is not possible in a small book of this type to cover the literature fully or to treat various debatable subjects pro and con. The high lights are brought out sharply and the general reader will be able, by careful reading, to orient himself accurately.
