This early works was originally published in 1912. INTRODUCTION: Industrial co-operation is regarded just now by many people as an antiquated and abandoned scheme. Its advantages are moderate in their dimensions and slow in their arrival. It calls for much patience and economy. It takes the world as it is and makes the best of it, instead of condemning it as incapable of good. For all these reasons co-operation is unattractive to those who expect a wholesale and immediate transformation of the industrial order. To such minds revolution looks more promising than evolution; patience seems more like a vice than a virtue; and economy seems to tempt the worker to submission rather than inflame him with discontent.....Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
