This volume is a useful addition to the list of good British textbooks on public health. It should be of great value to the British reader, as it brings together in clear and succinct form a mass of detail regarding the responsibilities of the physician in his relations with the government. The duties and services of the many public health and medical care programs are clearly explained, and instructions are given as to what procedures the physician must follow to obtain these services for his patient. This volume is of less practical value to the reader in the United States, as it contains only a few sections of basic principles and general information. Its chief value in this country will be to give the reader an insight into the British program.
