The literature regarding tuberculosis in India is limited to isolated articles in medical journals, together with a few small pamphlets dealing with special aspects of the subject. No apology is needed therefore, for an attempt to present in a somewhat more comprehensive form information which is now available, especially since in certain particulars the results of Indian experience would appear to shed valuable light upon the problem as it exists elsewhere.As an instance of this may be mentioned the important question of the causative connection between surgical tuberculosis and the bovine disease.

Some authorities whose writings are widely read both in England and in India, continue to express the opinion that surgical tuberculosis is always of bovine origin. In the following pages I have tried to shew that surgical tuberculosis is prevalent over large areas in India where the possibility of infection from bovine sources may be practically or even absolutely excluded. If this be true, the fact is at least worthy of consideration by those in the United Kingdom or America who would connect all surgical tuberculosis with the use of tubercle-infected milk, while the recognition of the same fact in India is of obvious importance in regard to the question as to what may be the most fruitful lines of preventive effort.One criticism of the book which will almost certainly be made, is that it is too popular for medical readers, yet too technical for the laity.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
