This book makes available the names of institutions and research workers who are interested in problems of foods and nutrition. - It supplies also a list of titles of research projects now being carried on or contemplated.

Nevertheless, the work constitutes a valuable attempt to collect and correlate material into reference form so that one can see the type of research being carried on in the field of food and nutrition. The method of indexing is rather complex but is clearly explained, so that little difficulty should be encountered in finding the material being sought.
The book is organized into general sections under physiology, chemistry, technology, economics, bacteriology, psychology, participating organizations and personnel involved in this type
