KIRKUS REVIEW

The best alternative is, if at all possible, to avoid medical care overseas"" and the best assurance is Dr. Cahill's short and very specific book of prophylactic intent, particularly if you are going to underdeveloped countries. Wasting no words, he discusses inoculations (including measles, plague and hepatitis); medicines to take along--paregoric and tetracycline (not what many consider the traveler's boon, Entero-vioform) for intestinal difficulties, analgesics, antimalarials, etc. and discusses very briefly the time-zone syndrome, air sickness, and the wise precautions re food and water. Cautious and sound.
