Abstract

The New York Academy of Medicine and the Commonwealth Fund, either alone or in combination, are likely to do things well. This book is worthy of both sponsors.

The monograph is well written and gives an amiable account of recent medical history as it has influenced or has been influenced by economic changes, industry, education, urbanization and American life in general. The conclusion is sound: The chief problem of medical practice that agitates the public today is providing for every one a high quality of curative and preventive medical service.

The author, a doctor of philosophy and sociologist, says that the future prestige of the medical profession and the future contribution of medicine to scientific and social progress are closely related to the solution of this problem. He does not give the answer.
