This paper-bound volume contains the transactions of the fourth conference held at Frankfort on the Main, Germany, on May 9 and 10, 1940. There are, in all, twenty papers dealing with various changes which would improve general conditions in a large city. Such titles as "Climate and the City," "The Beginning and Growth of a City," "Characteristics of Industrial Towns," "Nutrition of the City Dweller" and "Nutrition and Incidence of Peptic Ulcer" are an index to the wide variety of topics covered.
The book is of interest so far as it gives an insight into the thought on this subject in wartime Germany.
