Description: Softcover edition, staple-bound, title statement and cartoon illustration of an eagle in a fat cat top hat clutching industry in one foot and the workers in the other printed on front cover in red ink. | "A series of articles viewing the so-called National Recovery Act, and the present almost total collapse, from various angles, demonstrating the futility of the efforts now being made by the Roosevelt Administration to reconstitute capitalism. The Socialist Labor Party solution--Industrial Self-Government by the Working Class--is clearly and repeatedly emphasized. As it is impossible to restore life to a corpse--though an electric current may induce spasms resembling life even in a corpse--so it is utterly impossible to restore life to the corpse of capitalism. Away with the putrid thing!"--inside front cover. | English.
