Library stamps/marks/labels and label residue, otherwise light wear. Crisp hardcover.; "While this book looks at a unique reform development during the Progressive period, it attempts to take the reader further and more broadly afield into the era than a strict adherence to the "facts" of workmen's compensation might allow. In a sense, what this book really concerns is how the modern (post 1900) American commonweal pie has been apportioned. Moreover, how the pie is sliced concerns not only the distribution of wealth, but the risks and responsibilities that are borne attendant to wealth creation. Looking at the American compensation reform, it is clear that one class was required to bear an abundance of the risks and responsibilities without sharing in a commensurately equitable portion of the wealth that was created by these terrible burdens." - Preface. ; Garland Studies in the History of American Labor; Ex-Library; xxv, 262 pages.
