KIRKUS REVIEW

Studious presentation in the field of consumer education of what the movement is, how it developed, and the necessity for ""consumer action"" for its future progress. Though this includes material on consumer cooperatives, it is primarily concerned with consumer group organization, the variety of interests that constitute the consumer movement, the definite objectives of consumer groups, the spread of services, testing agencies, committees, leagues, associations of all kinds and their power as consumer groups. This is a study and analysis of the issues and problems before the individual consumer and the group consumer, of the relation between business, producers, manufacturers and the public; the organization, finances and principles behind the listed agencies; the educational forums and literature, the research services and their value, the acceleration and nation-wide spread of legislation on value, dependability, etc. of consumer goods.
