LONDON : W. B. CLIVE,
(University Correspondence College Press),
The very favourable reception of First Stage Hygiene in this series by teachers and students, as well as the press, has induced the publishers and the authors of the present volume to think that there is an equal demand for a suitable book which represents a second years' course of study of Hygiene and Public Health. Most of the books already available for this purpose cover far more ground than the average student finds it possible to assimilate in one session, and, moreover, present such a wide course of study that most students find it quite impossible to devote sufficient time to it to acquire a practical as well as a theoretical knowledge of the subject.
The arrangement of the subject is similar to that of First Stage Hygiene, and, as far as possible, the different parts of the subject are taken in the same order. The lists of experiments that are added at the end of many of the chapters represent only the minimum amount of this kind of work, though they will doubtless suggest further possibilities in this direction. All the experiments described can be very easily carried out by the average student.
Chapters I., III., IV., IX., and XI., and the part of Chapter V., relating to Personal Hygiene and Disease, have been written by Mr. Lyster, while Mr. Ikin is responsible for Chapters II., VI., VII., VIII., X., and the remainder of Chapter V.
The authors will be very pleased to receive and to acknowledge any suggestions from teachers and students as to any means of adding to the usefulness of the book.
