A scholarly work, replete with statistics and references, which, if it errs, does so by taking the Fascists too much at their own evaluation. However, the author, who is professor of economics at St. Thomas College (St. Paul, Minnesota), correctly concludes that the Corporative State is "not an agency for the economic self-government of the Italian people but an instrument of economic control used by the totalitarian Fascist state for the achievement of its ultimate economic and political ends."
