This booklet has passed through sufficient editions to insure its usefulness and reliability. The contents are arranged in alphabetical order so that one may, even without referring to the table of contents, look for ascariasis, blastomycosis, diphtheria, or any other disease that is described. Each disease is taken up under identification, etiological agent, source and reservoir of infection, mode of transmission, incubation period, period of communicability, susceptibility and resistance, occurrence, and methods of control. This is a practical and handy little volume that should be found useful by nearly all practitioners, public health workers, and others who are interested in the control of communicable diseases in man.
