In this small booklet, Lord Horder discusses rheumatic disorders from the point of view of incidence and causes, and available therapeutic measures. He proposes a national scheme of treatment and discusses the problem of finance and, in an appendix, rheumatism in the defense services. Quite naturally, the treatment of each of these subjects is brief.
