Written as a guide in environmental sanitation for students in sanitary engineering, nurses, sanitarians, and physicians qualifying as health officers, this volume presents in limited detail and 21 chapters, over-all descriptions of the principles, practices and apparatuses used in environmental sanitation in the United States. Among the topics discussed are Principles of Disinfection; sanitation of food, eating places, milk and milk products; Air Pollution; Ventilation; Industrial Sanitation; Insect Control; Rodent Control; and so on. Almost half of the book is devoted to Public Water Supplies, Refuse Disposal, Rural and Urban Sewage Disposal, Stream Pollution, and Industrial Wastes. Discussions are concise and well written and unusually well illustrated. Subject matter is intelligently chosen for readers already having some background in one of the branches of preventive medicine. Each chapter has a list of supplementary reading, generally up-to-date and pertinent.
