Our Library Table. A HEALTHY NATION. "The Dawn of the Health Ag-e." By Ben- jamin Moore. Pp. 204. Liverpool The Liverpool Booksellers' Co Ltd., 70, Lord- street. Dr. Benjamin Moore, of the Bio-Chemical Department, Liverpool University, has written a truly powerful book on a subject which is rapidly coming to the front, and we hope and believe that it will be very widely read. He pleads with much cogency of argument for a rationally constituted public medical ser- vice armed with powers to fight disease," and appeals to public opinion for support of this much-needed reform. Treating the matter in an entirely non-controversial spirit, the author shows that the social reforms now advocated by all parties will, if carried out on truly national lines, lead to the evolution of a National Medical Service, and he describes how such a service would both save money and eradicate disease. Health is the nation's wealth," says an old adage, and any move- ment which aims at conserving that precious store should certainly receive the cordial approval of every enlightened patriot. That is why we heartily commend this powerful book to the attention of our readers. The work is divided into five chapters, the titles of which indicate both the need for reform and how it may be achieved if the nation is truly in earnest. They are as follows How we tinker with disease instead of stopping it." The follies of our present public health service." The doctor and his patient in private practice and in State practice." "Our hospital systems: Their evils and abuses." The warfare with the great white plague." "The evolution of the National Medical Service." In a future issue we shall deal at greater length with the subject of this book, but for the present we will again urge all our readers to study its teaching, for it shows how at least three hundred thousand lives could be saved every year in this country, and that this could not only be done without costing the nation a single penny, but actually mil- lions of pounds a year might be saved to the nation which under present conditions are absolutely wasted.
