The rapid expansion of the general field of preventive medicine is well illustrated by the publication of this book, covering the entire subject of educational hygiene from the preschool period through the university. The amount of ground covered precludes the possibility of its preparation by a single writer. Professor Rapeer has therefore undertaken to act as editor, each chapter being contributed by a recognized authority. After an introductory chapter by the editor, the public health movement is discussed by Dr. E. H. Lewenski-Corwin, secretary of the Health Committee of the New York City Academy of Medicine; health and heredity by Dr. Davenport of the Carnegie Institution; home hygiene for children by Dr. Ernest B. Hoag of Leland Stanford Jr. University; rural school administration by W. I. Larson, state inspector of rural schools of Wisconsin; open air and open window schools by Sherman C. Kingsley, director of the Elizabeth McCormick Memorial
