WHILE compensation legislation is comparatively new, it has developed
rapidly, as appears from the fact that Workmen's Compensation Acts
have been adopted by the Federal Government, thirty-two states, three
territories, and many foreign countries. This legislation has received
a sufficiently thorough test to demonstrate its merit as a means of
alleviating certain conditions which have arisen as a result of indus-
trial progress, and to assure its permanency. The underlying princi-
ples have become sufficiently fixed to make of value a text book based
on the opinions of the courts and various commissions and officers
vested with the power and duty of enforcing these Acts, particularly
if supplemented by an index furnishing a ready means of reference
and a means of comparing the text of the legislation on which the
opinions are based with the text of that Act in which the investigator
is primarily interested. In this view this book has been prepared. It
contains references to all material English and American cases and
opinions, together with the text of each Act for purpose of comparison
as above mentioned, and is submitted in the hope that it may duly
facilitate investigations into this interesting and valuable class of legis-

lation.

Occasion is hereby taken to acknowledge the uniform courtesy of the various commissions, boards, secretaries, and attorneys from whom much valuable material and information has been secured.
