One of three reviews by Bates of H.J. Massingham's England and the Farmer, the others appearing in Life and Letters To-day and in the Journal of the Royal Society of Arts.

In all three reviews, Bates is highly critical of Massingham's selection of contributors and of some of his basic premises. The review led to a contentious interchange between the two writers.

In The Spectator (25 July 1941, p. 90).
