Science and Progress


    THIS book is one of a series projected by the Young Communist League. After directing attention to the ways in which science has changed the world's outlook, the author compares the progress of science under various forms of social structure—capitalism, Fascism and in the U.S.S.R. The last chapter deals with science and reconstruction after the War. Throughout the book the importance of organized scientific research is stressed. The author is convinced that this can only be adequately carried out under socialism, and he urges scientific men to fight for the best use of science "as a part of the organised Labour Movement". Half a crown seems a high price for such a propagandist pamphlet.
