New. $80. * "This volume portrays in an interesting manner why another 'noble experiment' proved so disappointing. Dr. Blaisdell has appraised the Commission as a going concern during its career of some eighteen years. He has ably constructed a balance sheet of accomplishments and deficiencies and has assigned the reasons for its varying fortunes. The main theme pursued is the difference between the original purpose and actual achievement. (...) For those who are interested in the background and record of an experiment in the administrative control of the trust problem, this volume will prove of great value." : Benjamin S. Kirsh, Columbia Law Review 33 (1933) 193-194.
