Devine first discusses the fundamental principles which should guide one who grapples with the vital social and economic problem of helping the dependent; then he illustrates both the problem and the methods of relief by case histories and by narration of the organized relief measures taken after some of the great disasters, such as the Galveston flood and the Slocum fire. Charity workers will find this book valuable, as Devine's experience fits him to speak with authority.
