This little book deals with a subject about which there still is bitter partisan feeling. The author takes the side in favor of BCG vaccination and presents plenty of evidence for his views. The reviewer feels, however, that no final universal answer can be found, since the indications for BCG vaccination will vary so much with circumstances of time, place and local conditions. Everyone interested in the problem will, however, wish to read this book.
