This is the sixth in a series begun in 1943. They are excellent, if not essential, books for the library of the public health officer, the medical writer, the social worker or any one who is concerned with medical progress, social advances and the health of the people. If the reader remembers that when he wants the 1947 material he will look for it in the 1948 Year Book, an anomaly which the publishers have stubbornly refused to correct, he will find these volumes serviceable and interesting.
