KIRKUS REVIEW

The blandishments of the Chamber of Commerce for a dull, loosely, and carelessly, written chronicle of the meat packing industry which smiles indulgently on its big names and achievements which synchronized with a time of vast opportunity as well as opportunism. From the triumvirate of Swift and Armour and Nelson Morris, the colossi of the industry, to Wilson who succeeded them in leadership and vision; from the changes in techniques and operations to the introduction of refrigeration-and cellophane; from the hypercritical attacks against the industry which began with Upton Sinclair's The ungle to the contemporary alternative- beefsteak of borsch, this is the story- such as it is. And who's hungry anyway?
