KIRKUS REVIEW

A practical farmer and one of America's ablest labor leaders have here collaborated to explain labor's position to the farmer, and the farmer's problems to labor- an essential foundation for future understanding. It is an attempt to show mutual need for full production, whether in factory or on farm, if living standards are to be raised for the 70% represented by these two groups. The text goes into many of the cooperatives already effective in both groups but shows the necessity of expanding beyond selfish group interests for the welfare of the nation as a whole. The need of a more comprehensive type of education in the high schools to include the respective problems of each group. In final analysis, one gets an impression of two sincere Americans attempting to bridge a gap, not for political advantage but as a step to bring about a prosperous democracy. Informative and provocative.
