This is one of the series of medical history manuals. The selection of Mr. Stephen Paget as the author was most fortunate. His long service as secretary of the Research Defense Society of England, his thorough familiarity with the scientific foundation of medicine, and his extensive writings on scientific subjects, both technical and popular, qualify him admirably for the task of preparing a popular book on Pasteur, his work and its results. The basis of the biographic portion is Radot's well-known "Life of Pasteur." In addition to a sketch of the man and his work, the development of bacteriology and preventive medicine after Pasteur's time is discussed, including the work of Lister, Koch, Roux, Haffkine, Kitasato, Yersin and others. The book is an excellent little manual on the development of modern preventive medicine. It can be read with profit by every physician, and can be recommended without hesitation to laymen
