KIRKUS REVIEW

Inasmuch as war, the great leveller and coordinator, is changing the framework of British life, and changing it for the better, Huxley writes of British democracy, as it was, and as it should be after the war is ended. He analyzes their democracy in contradistinction to ours, their social services, living standards, health and medicine, planning and development of backward areas. And in each he shows what is yet to be done. At the close Huxley envisions the democracy of the future, in which ""a dethronement of the motives of profit and individual advancement, in favor of social motives and social incentives"" will take place. A supplement to the Laski, less theory, more fact; clear-sighted and far-sighted, as one would expect.
