Dr. Alfred Cox, former secretary of the British Medical Association, presents a brief autobiographical sketch of his experiences as a practicing physician in England and later as the secretary of the association. Many of the events described will be of interest only to British physicians, but the detailed story of the struggle between the British Medical Association and Mr. Lloyd George, from 1911 to 1913, at which time the first irreversible step toward the socialization of British medicine was taken, will interest American physicians who have until now prevented such a development here. His analysis of the present situation is summed up in the words, "It might have been worse—but not much."
