Sweden: The Middle Way on Trial

By Marquis Childs
Yale University Press, 1980
179 pp. $12.95

A veteran journalist returns to the subject of his celebrated report of 1936, Sweden: The Middle Way. The present work, episodic and anecdotal, presents a somber analysis of Sweden's difficulties which have been produced by the very successes of the welfare state. Once again, Swedish experience may have exemplary lessons for other nations, as Sweden's crisis seems to epitomize Western problems. A timely and readable study.
