KIRKUS REVIEW

The Peril to Democracy, The Legacy of the New Deal and The New Economic Constitution -- these are the three Storrs Lectures, published first in the New Republic and now brought together in book form. George Soule recognizes the need for examining our internal structure, he outlines the main problems before the New Deal and gives credit for success in regulating the sources of money, partial success in regulating the flow of money, and charges confusion in matters of price adjustments, lack of success in stimulating private enterprise, no solution of unemployment. He shows that while important reforms have been made they are still inadequate and that it is imperative that government be permitted to enter further into the field of goods and services sold to consumers. He outlines a new economic program, policed by trade unionism, etc.
