This textbook of industrial dermatology is most welcome. Dermatologists, industrial physicians and others interested in the cause, prevention and treatment of dermatoses due to various irritants to which workers are subjected in various trades, occupations and professions will approve of a most adequate presentation of this rather neglected subject. Schwartz, because of his position in the United States Public Health Service, has been able to draw from his rich experience in industrial dermatology as could no other American dermatologist. He has been ably assisted by his co-author, Tulipan, who has also had intensive experience with industrial dermatoses in compensation work. While most of the material is drawn from the authors' own observations and experience, they have incorporated the reports of numerous other investigators in this field and have included an extensive list of references.

The first 74 pages are devoted to such subjects as the relation of workmen's compensation laws
