KIRKUS REVIEW

A handbook the first we have covered- written specifically for union officials and members, its purpose to train and develop executive leaders in the methods and techniques that have proved as successful for management. The author has done a thorough job, and although at times he seems repetitious, he drives home his points on the various educational and training methods used today in colleges and labor union schools. He and his associates at Chicago University have brought to their work many of the techniques of recent development and application, -- lectures with buzz sessions, discussion groups, role playing, , films, recordings to vary the old type instruction, and to bring about audience and listener participation. Not a book to be read and put aside, but a book that requires concentrated study and application in order to get full value from it. In days when management in desirous of finding avenues of approach, this sort of union leadership training should forward the cause of better labor -- management relations. It should also prove very practical for clarifying shop stewards' duties, collective bargaining negotiation preparation, and internal efficiency of union operation. Available also in paper at $1.
