PYRAMIDS OF POWER

This may be somewhat misleading, for the jacket would suggest that the book deals with a broad panorama of giants of the power world, while actually the focus is on Insull and the kingdom he built -- and its crash. A discussion of the dangers of private ownership of utilities, using the Insull kingdom as a spring-board, and demonstrating how definitely the Roosevelt policies have developed to prevent such a thing happening again. Makes clear why the private utilities hate and fear the administration. Although he does not commit himself wholeheartedly for the Administration policies, his attitude is distinctly pro-Roosevelt. The market -- the financial and industrial field, those who uro willing to face facts and see dangers. Pretty sober and unsensational handling of the whole matter.
