About this Item

After the medical profession was attacked by Dr A.J. Cronin in his novel 'The Citadel' for the injustices of the pre-NHS health system in Britain in the 1930s, Dr Harpole launches this stout and eloquent defence, marking the medical progress and skills which surgery and pathology had recently made, and quotes cases and examples of that progress. Ultimately, the NHS model would be introduced nationwide within a decade, harnessing Harpole's progress and addressing Cronin's concerns. Light brown cloth boards black lettering. Dust jacket tanned with spine browned, edges and corners rubbed and chipped, small tear at lower back DJ spine, page edges tanning. Original price on jacket spine (8s 6d).
