Abstract

Dr. Myers has produced a book worthy of the attention of both medical and non-medical workers. It contains subject matter concisely and logically arranged, the reading of which is easy and interest is maintained without the danger of monotony.

There are sixteen chapters and the tuberculosis problem is considered in these beginning with the communicability and inheritance and ending most logically with constructive suggestions for future control programs. Between the first and the last chapters the child is considered from the angle of susceptibility, the manner of detecting incipient infection, the control in the family, the rôle of milk, the incidence according to sex and, of course, all the methods and protective measures which experience and research have abundantly shown to be effective in diagnosis, therapy and prophylaxis.

One is surprised to note the degree to which the nursing staff of tuberculosis sanitaria or wards are exposed and eventually show infection to a greater or lesser degree after varying periods of service.
