This volume covers the experiment carried on by the Milbank Foundation in Cattaraugus County, N. Y. Dr. Winslow surveyed the experiment after its completion. He is inclined to take lightly the criticisms made by the medical profession. No doubt eventually, when the acrimony involved in this situation has subsided, it will be possible to make an actually scientific evaluation of its results. Dr. Winslow seems, unfortunately, to have approached the consideration with a bias in favor of demonstrations generally and in favor of the demonstrators in this instance. His position in the field of public health and his experience make his views interesting whenever he writes; his abilities in literary presentation make the reading of whatever he writes worth while. Hence, this volume may be recommended to all of those interested in public health problems who may read with the understanding that proper comprehension of the situation demands.
