Abstract

Reviews the book, Social-economic movements by Harry W. Laidler (1945). Dr. Laidler's work is conducive and perhaps indispensable to an adequate historical comprehension of social struggle. The present volume grew out of his earlier study, “A History of Socialist Thought” (1927). Parts of it form a rewritten version of the older book, which is now made one-third larger by the addition of twelve wholly new chapters. The added material covers the recent development of cooperatives, the Russian scheme of life, and the general progress of social democracy, hampered as it has been by totalitarianism and war, to 1944. While the presentation is “straight history” that makes no direct psychological contribution as such, it contains numerous items of implicit concern to the social psychologist.
