Excerpt from Selected Articles on Modern Industrial Movements This book presents the first collection in one volume of articles on modem industrial movements. It covers the most important printed material which has appeared in periodicals, reports and other important sources not easily accessible. Some subjects such as Socialism, Trade Unions, Compulsory Arbitration of Industrial Disputes, Compulsory Insurance, Minimum Wage, Open vs Closed Shop, Single Tax, are not included in this book as they are fully covered in other Handbooks published by The H. W. Wilson Company. The aim of the editor and compiler has been to present each subject from all angles so that the reader may have the opportunity of forming his own judgment as to the particular movements discussed. Not only will this handbook, therefore, be of value to students at schools and colleges, but it will also appeal to the business man and the industrial manager, and the workers in industry who want to know in some detail about important movements in industry. We can arrive at the truth best by balancing what authoritative proponents of such movements say, with the expressions of responsible writers who hold contrary points of view. A large amount of material was gone over before the articles in this volume were selected and the task was difficult because of the rapidly changing status of such movements as Bolshevism, and the Shop Stewards' Movement However, in those cases, the articles finally selected make clear the fundamentals underlying the growth of the movements and thus will serve their purpose in throwing light on the industrial thought of our time.
