In the present era of emphasis on the respiratory effects of air pollution, it is timely to have further study and review of current knowledge of the epidemiology of chronic obstructive lung disease, generally referred to on the Continent as "chronic non-specific lung disease" (CNSLD). To assess properly the role of atmospheric pollution, information is needed regarding a number of variables, both exogenous and endogenous. Many of these are critically examined in this monograph, which includes a great deal more than an account of the author's survey of CNSLD in three towns.
The first five chapters of the book are
