The third volume of Sir Arthur Newsholme's contributions includes studies of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The organization of medical practice in England is highly complicated because of the introduction of sickness insurance and various other socialized schemes. Dr. Newsholme reveals the methods of operation of these plans in various towns and villages. He feels that the entire system is today an experiment subject to constant modification and change with experience. Again he reiterates the difficulty of comparing the mortality rates in various countries.
