This splendid textbook, first printed in 1935, is now in the third edition and has been thoroughly revised. It is well indexed, nicely arranged, rather well illustrated, particularly with graphs, and in general gives an attractive appearance. Part I has to do with organizations in the United States. Part II has for its subject "The Administrative Control of Cmmunicable Diseases"; part III, "Basic Activities of a Health Organization," and part IV, "Organization of Public Health Programs."
The book is subdivided in such a way that it will be easily used as a textbook and has evidently been arranged with that in mind. Particularly suitable would be the use of this book by junior or senior medical students. It is well documented at the end of the chapters.
Dr. Smillie has done a notable work in preparing this book and keeping it up to date. It can be recommended without reservation.
