KIRKUS REVIEW

Can't see a general trade market for this, but sociologists and specialists in the study of family as an institution will find it a valuable tool. For public libraries, colleges, etc. A careful study of the situation in Sweden, the curve of population, of marriage, of illegitimacy, the acceptance by the state of responsibility for family planning, the blue print for society. He presents the data on reforms and provisions in Sweden, the educational program relating to the economics of homemaking, the housing program, the nutrition studies, the health, social security, educational and recreational provisions, the developments along the lines of women in society. He prefaces all this by expressing the belief that some sort of social revolution will follow the war; here is a plan worth studying.
