In his preface the author states that it has been his endeavor to present in one volume a systematic summary of our knowledge of epidemiology and the process of infection, and a careful perusal of the book proves that he has accomplished his purpose, for we have here one of the best considerations of epidemiology that it has been the reviewer's good fortune to come across in recent years. It is written in an entertaining and yet scientific manner, the deductions of the author are conservative and sensible, and the work of others is well quoted in an appreciative and courteous manner. The book is one that should be owned by every Public Health Officer as it contains material that it is difficult to find in other similar works, and is filled with up-to-date facts concerning epidemiology and the methods of infection.
