KIRKUS REVIEW

This is part of the findings of the Institute of Human Relations, in their study of the unemployment problem in New Haven, its effect on the men themselves and on their relation to the community. This particular volume falls into two distinct parts:- The World of Labor and The World of Unemployed Labor. Part one studies the worker in his job, how he got the job and why he is in that field of work, his goals, his attitude towards a job and the job, towards his boss, his employer, himself in the job. Finally, the steps he takes to insure his future, and why. The second part, through a series of cases, analyzes the effect on the worker of loss of job in all its aspects. Finally, the ""retreat to relief"" -- and the result. Pedantic in approach and handling.
