KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to Your City, but dependent on that for some of the basic principles, and should be used by economists, statisticians and students of civic reform jointly with the earlier book. He takes cities of 20 to 30,000, analyzing their differences in such vital matters, as health provisions, cost of living, home ownership, education, illiteracy. He discusses the significant details such as per capita expenditure for teachers, the supervisory measures over milk and water. He scores the individual differences in providing for the fullness of life. Challenging.
