ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The French Labor Movement, by Val R. Lorwin. Val Lorwin's carefully compiled account of the French labor movement from its beginnings as secret societies of wandering bachelor journeymen in the fifteenth century down to its present schizophrenic paralysis, is in a sense an observation, like Malraux's, on the shabby, worn, down-at-the-heels remnants of a brilliant past. In France today there is a syndicate with effective representation protecting the powerfully institutionalized interest of every economic activity in the country, except those of wage-earners.
