The increasing importance of workmen's compensation makes this volume of interest to medical men in Canada and America, inasmuch as the number of industrial casualties in these two countries reaches enormous figures, even greater than the casualties of the War. Out of the large number of injured workers grow many problems which almost daily meet the medical and surgical practitioner, and are finally decided by Compensation Boards, which in the reviewer's experience, are all too often ignorant and incompetent. Before such Boards opinions based upon scientific knowledge are often set aside by the judgment of an ignorant and prejudiced Commissioner.
