THE REVOLT OF THE SOUTH AND WEST

Both geographically and factually, this is a more extensive examination of the industrial challenge of our subordinated South and West than Berge's Economic Freedom for the West (see P. 210)- but it is a close parallel, both in attitude and analysis. Here is an expose of these areas shackled by Eastern capital, cartels and monopolies, kept poor at a profit for the East, oppressed by lower wages and higher cost of living, poor educational and health provisions, under rule of managers and absentee control, from the civil war carpetbagger to the present day corporate carpetbagger. Both South and West have minority problems to solve, for their own economic welfare. Here, as in the Berge book, is an analysis of specifics,- the railroads and discriminatory rates, the Missouri Valley and its TVA opportunities, steel- the symbol and most vital aspect of industrial independence- for which Kaiser has crusaded; reforestation, etc...A liberal, perhaps more lively presentation of an important impasse today, a potential tomorrow.
