Labor and Administration


Professor of Political Economy in the University of Wisconsin

The history of labor laws and strikes has this in common to both laws
become dead letters ; the victories of strikes are nibbled away. Some
philosophers fall back on the individual's moral character. Little, they
think, can be done by law or unions. There are others who inquire how
to draft and enforce the laws, how to keep the winnings of strikes in
short, how to connect ideals with efficiency.

These are the awakening questions of the past decade, and the subject
of this book. Here is a field for the student and economist not the
" friend of labor " who paints an abstract workingman, but the utilitarian
idealist, who sees them all as they are ; not the curious collector of facts
and statistics, but the one who measures the facts and builds them into a
foundation and structure. His constructive problem is not so much the
law and its abstract rights, as administration and its concrete results.

American Syndicalism - The I. ff^.

Author of "As Others See Us," "The Social Unrest," etc.

Cloth, $1.25 net; postpaid, $1.36

" Mr. Brooks's book is a careful, sympathetic, and critical study of Amer-
ican syndicalism as represented in the order named the Industrial Workers
of World.

"The theory, or 'philosophy,' of this syndicalism is given, a review made of
the practical experiences of the movement as it has expressed itself here in
the last few years, and a view sought of its possible destinies in the United
States. Mr. Brooks says :

" ' In it and through it is something as sacred as the best of the great dream-
ers have ever brought us. In the total of this movement, the deeper, inner
fact seems to be its nearness to and sympathy with that most heavy laden and
long enduring mass of common toilers. Alike to our peril and to our loss
shall we ignore this fact'" New York Tribune.

The Social Unrest

Studies in Labor and Social Movements


Cloth, I2tno, 394 pages, $1.50 net

"The author, Mr. John Graham Brooks, takes up and discusses, through
nearly four hundred pages, the economic significance of the social questions
of the hour, the master passions at work among us, men versus machinery,
and the solution of our present ills in a better concurrence than at present ex-
ists an organization whereby every advantage of cheaper service and cheaper
product shall go direct to the whole body of the people. . . . Nothing upon
his subject so comprehensive and at the same time popular in treatment as
this book has been issued in our country. It is a volume with live knowledge

not only for workman but for capitalist, and the student of the body politic

for every one who lives and who does not ? upon the product of
labor." The Outlook.

Mr. Bliss Perry, the editor of The Atlantic Monthly, says of it : "A fascinat-
ing book to me the clearest, sanest, most helpful discussion of economic and
human problems I have read for years."
