Originally published in 1931, this book looks at the challenges associated with maintaining public health in a port city. Professor Hope, taking Liverpool as his example, stresses the importance of preventative measures in preserving the health of the city at large, the treatment of immigrants with pre-existing medical conditions and the impact of public health legislation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of public health and the administration required to run a massive port.
