This is an unusual monograph which is particularly well written, printed, illustrated, and indexed. As Dr. Ernest Kennaway points out in the "Foreword," if the incidence of primary cancer of the liver were as great in any large white population as it is in the Bantu of South Africa, it would be held to constitute a major problem in cancer research.

The author, living in South Africa, has made a careful study of liver carcinoma as he has seen it among the Bantus, and he has done his best to compare the disease in that particular race with the disease as it occurs among other peoples. He has accomplished a scholarly piece of work which deserves high praise; his observations are well documented, and his conclusions are interesting and stimulating.
