The author's long and notable career as a prominent leader in international health qualifies him, as few others are qualified, to prepare this work. Throughout its thoroughly absorbing 315 pages there are numerous reflections of his intimate knowledge of the events and, oftentimes, personalities concerned and it is these that have enabled him to make the book far more than a careful chronology—although it is this also.

The coverage of each important phase of development from the problems of quarantine in the early 18th century to the 3rd World Health Assembly in 1950, the generous use of appendices that provide relevant details from important basic documents and records and the extensive system of references make this book highly valuable to any student of international health whether he be engaged in academic pursuit of some aspect of this field or actively engaged in it as a health worker or statesman.
