KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not a new report, but simply an announcement that Allan Nevins has supervised the abridgement of his Study in Power, which appeared in 1953 in two volumes. The original work stands today as an important contribution to the study of American business, both as a portrait of the man and his career, from an extraordinarily objective viewpoint, in view of its acceptance as an ""official"" biography. Not only is it important as a business biography, but as a record of a far reaching, significant development of the Foundation which has given millions to philanthropy and education. As a one volume work, this should reach a considerably wider general market. The actual work of abridgement was done by Wm. Greenleaf.
