All physicians today should be familiar with the activities of at least some of the departments of the federal government. Personal experience has provided some familiarity, and, yet, there are some physicians who know little about less publicized departments that may affect their lives in almost unbelievable ways. Therefore, they would be in a better position to understand modern government, its demands and its services, if they knew its organizational make-up. This manual offers such information and should be available to all physicians who pride themselves on being good citizens. It contains a wealth of material, which is presented concisely and lucidly. Young and old, student and casual reader, business man, professional man, housewife—all of these and others will find this book interesting and a handy reference.
