This book presents a survey of the year 1944 in twenty-seven major fields of activity, among them the medical sciences. The reviews of medicine, pathology and physiology are prepared by Dr. Max Trubek of New York, who tells of the advances with penicillin, the control of typhus, the insect repellents, thiouracil and blood fractions. The article on surgery is by Dr. Edwin J. Pulaski of New York. He discusses the sulfonamides, penicillin, proteins, thiouracil, frostbite and blood fractions. The article on public health is by W. W. Peter of New Haven, Conn. He discusses the health of the nation from many different points of view and seems to have reviewed adequately major fields of interest in public health in recent years.
