SWEDEN: The Middle Way by Marquis Childs

SWEDEN: The Middle Way

Email this review


An intensely interesting analysis of the experiment (if an established order can be so termed) in government, in economics, in sociology which gives Sweden a security from social unrest not known elsewhere in the world. The hows and whys of the cooperative system; the labor problems; the government operation of utilities; the housing plan; the state in industry; liquor control; the place of the monarchy; employment; recovery. A book that any reader interested in social, political and economic problems would do well to read and ponder. Illustrated with numerous photographs. There is one chapter on Denmark, and their contribution to the solution of the agricultural problem.
