Item #2670 Technocracy: An Interpretation. Stuart Chase.

Technocracy: An Interpretation

New York: The John Day Company, 1933. First Edition.

Liberal economist Stuart Chase (1888-1985) attempts to explain the Technocracy movement during the Depression years in this scarce pamphlet. "Machines are displacing men, swiftly, dramatically, terribly," he writes (page 15). Yet, he says, "I incline to agree with Technocracy that scientific development is an irreversible process." (page 29). That being the case, he favors social and government control of its relentless advance. No. 19 in the John Day series of pamphlets. SCARCE.

PHYSICAL DETAILS: Small Octavo (7 1/2 x 5 1/8 inches; 190 x 130 mm), 32 pages, in stapled, green wrappers (soft cover).

CONDITION: Edge wear, soiling, and creasing to the wrappers, sunning to spine, internally clean and unmarked, but pages 15-18 have become detached from the staples. About Good. Item #2670

Price: $40.00
