This monograph develops naturally from the author's previous 1948 book, The Pathology of Nutritional Disease. In the earlier volume he restricted his discussion to those changes which could be ascribed to lack of a single nutrient. Those due to lack of multiple factors were excluded. In the present volume he broadens scope to discuss deficiencies due to multiple factors, as well as single nutrients, corresponding to the natural state of most deficiency disease.
In his introduction the author outlines the course of the book, from inorganic to organic factors, to vitamins, to naturally-occurring deficiency disease, and to system involvement. By
