This is a comprehensive, almost encyclopedic, text covering every field of public health. The author is a lawyer as well as a doctor, and the legal influence is strongly apparent in the detailed description of laws in England relating to the various fields of public health covered in the text. There are excellent descriptions of the organization of all levels of public health activity in Great Britain and the legislation pertinent to this organization. There is a clear description of the National Health Service and its interrelationship with the public health authorities. From this content alone the book is of value to American students of public health as a clear and concise description of the administrative features of public health in Great Britain. As a result of the extensive and comprehensive nature of the book the descriptions of all features of public health are necessarily brief and not as detailed in some cases as one might desire.
