Four years ago the New York Academy of Medicine formed the Committee on Medicine and the Changing Order to study the economic and social changes taking place in medical care. The forty-eight members of this committee have examined critically every phase of the current medical situation and have published the results in ten separate volumes, each dealing with a special subject.

In this report the committee attempts to draw together its findings and present its conclusions as to what may best be done to remedy present inadequacies. The committee has recognized the futility of viewing medical care as an isolated phenomenon and has made an effort to present it as a part of the whole pattern of present day living.

The book is suitable for study groups of organizations and particularly for the woman's auxiliaries of the various medical societies.
