"Professor Davis has diligently gathered together a wealth of specific and concrete material to illustrate the anarchic economic and moral conditions under capitalism. The concreteness of the book ought to commend it as good anti-capitalistic propaganda for general consumption." - The Nation; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
