KIRKUS REVIEW

The Chinese labor movement is of recent and rapid growth, but roots back to craft and regional guilds, and is born -- as an organized movement -- in the chaos of revolutionary emergency. Quick development of modern industry with a new class of workers, concentration in 5 provinces, importance of labor in struggle for power, and low level of living standards all back of sudden development. Miss Wales outlines the characteristics of the movement, the preliminary stages, the rise during revolution and decline during Civil wars and Sino-Japanese war -- and the conditions today, -- slave labor under conquerors, rigid control under Kuomintang, industrial cooperatives, and developments under Red China.
