(From the forward) We are confronted by demands for social reconstruction. These pose grave problems with far-reaching implications. This books is written with the conviction that their solution must be looked for along lines not yet considered. Its aim is to show what has to be done in order that social demands coming from a larger part of mankind may be turned in the direction of conscious social purpose. Welcome or unwelcome, the facts of social life are present and must be reckoned with. Those who may object to the author's way of discussing proletarian demands should bear this in mind. He wants to present life as it really is. He is aware of the fatal consequences that will result if people refused to look at the facts. These facts have arisen out of the life of modern mankind.
