This volume, as revised and remitten, gives not only a survey of the field
of nutrition in children but also much of the material needed for success iu it.
It presents a broad conception of nutrition, taking into consideration developments and investigations of the 8 years since tho first edition was published.
The general organization plan is the same; the first half being devoted to a
consideration of the laws of growth and to the nature, causes, effects and
identification of malnutrition, and the latter half to methods of combating it,
with particular reference to the part of the public school in the movement.
Of unusual interest i n the new material one finds a discussion of the effects of
the depression on nutrition and health so f a r as they are known, a summary of
studies of optimum versus adequate nutrition, a discussion of the mental effects
of under nutrition, and a brief outline of the parent education movement. In a
subject so broad and so rapidly growing as this one it is interesting to note how
skillfully the author has chosen and arranged her material. The extensive
bibliography which is supplied f o r each chapter gives evidence of the thoroughness with which the field has been covered.
DIRECTIONS FOR THE DISSECTION O F THE CAT, by Robert Payne
Bigelow. Revised edition. 1935. Size, 5 X 74 inches. Pages xi 65. 4
illustrations. References. Cloth. Price, $0.90. The Maemillan Company, New
York.
+
A small book carefully planned to give the student instructions which will
enable him to obtain by his own effort, without loss of time, a sound knowledge
of the elements of mammalian anatomy and to acquire familiarity with the
language of the subject. It requires but one specimen for the dissection and
study of the various organs and systems. Function rather than morphology
of parts is stressed. Although the oat belongs to a highly specialized family of
meat-eating mammals, its internal anatomy differs but little from human anatomy
except in those parts that are modified in man by the erect posture and enlarged
brain, and a laboratory dissection of the cat serves as an excellent preliminary
to the study of human physiology and personal hygiene.
