From the cover: “In recent years there has been a trend in local government finance which must alarm all those interested in a healthy and vigorous system of local government. Local authorities are deriving a progressively smaller proportion of their revenue from income whose amount they themselves determine and a correspondingly larger proportion from central government grants. The result can be seen in increased administrative control by the central government and a loss of local autonomy.
