Baruch on industrial mobilization for war-a subject to which Mr. Baruch has devoted many years of study. In addition to Mr. Baruch's most important current writings on industrial mobilization, the book gives the complete text of the famous report of the War Industries Board, brought up to date with editorial footnotes where there have been new developments affecting the plans of our present National Defense Program. This book also contains copies of many of the Priorities Circulars issued by the War Industries Board, Preference Lists, Minutes of the Industrial Adjustments Committee, Reports of the Labor Conference, various fixedprice schedules issued by the Board, and many other reports of special interest at this time. With the guidance of this book, executives of industries affected by the National Defense Program can anticipate probable industrial and governmental trends; can foresee the probable effect of orders issued by the Office of Production Management; and can decide upon the most efficient and most advantageous course of procedure during the present emergency."
Very Good. No dust jacket present. Ex-Library Withdrawn. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. 498 pages. "Total defense must plan to fight to win, and above all to survive war. This means some plan along lines similiar to the experience tested by the United States War Industries Board of 1917 and 1918. It must mobilize men, money, material, morale-all resources-to give to the war-making agencies and those allied with them, such as shipping and blockade, what they want when they want it, without necessary deprivation or exploitation of civilizations. This volume contains documents which will show what should be done and what should be avoided." VERY GOOD HARDCOVER, ex-library withdrawn.
