KIRKUS REVIEW

A study of England's Sixty Families, done with typical restraint -- a quiet, documentary piece of work, ornamented with charts, diagrams and statistics, and withal revealing as to interpenetration of the leading Tories into business, munitions, public utilities, -- anti-labor, and anti-peace. He shows the irresponsibility of the MP's toward democratic institutions, toward social problems -- their stake in the Empire, their share in the aristocracy. ""The resolute banding of the great and the rich and the noble -- against the true genuine sense of the people"" (Gladstone). Fascinating documentary evidence of ""democratic"" England -- but not for the average American ignorant of England.
