This paper-bound volume was prepared by the author for the League Against Blindness of the Republic of Cuba to urge the formation of a National Corporation of Blindness and to propose laws for this purpose. The first three chapters deal with the problem of blindness in the Americas, a survey of blindness in Cuba, and a review of the psychological factors relating to blind persons. The next chapters are concerned with social assistance, education, and occupations for the blind, and a section on the history of canes and guide dogs used by the blind. The author then discusses the problem as it is being met in the countries of North and South America and Spain, and the development of organizations for the prevention of blindness. The final chapter contains the proposals for legislation, followed by a bibliography.
