KIRKUS REVIEW

By two members of the staff of the N.Y. Times, this is inclusive coverage of the progress, and the programs, concerned with the rehabilitation of the disabled which however does not fail to indicate the wide areas of neglect. In this survey of the various types of disability which affect one out of seven in our male working population, considered here are the military services and their physical reconditioning programs; the Veterans Administration, the help and the services they provide; the disabled civilian- the ""forgotten casualty"" of our time- and the incidence- 350,000 per year, and here particularly there is a need for funds and facilities; and particular afflictions which require particular therapies, tuberculosis, cardiac ailments, diabetes, cancer, paralysis, cerebral palsy, surgery patients and accident victims, etc., etc. The case illustrations give this both its human and hopeful value- and the naming of particular places for particular treatments give this its usefulness for those personally involved.
