Transcript ^ GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 9 tion of data to work upon before he allows his provisional " feeling " to harden into the certainty of conviction. In approaching these problems some students might prefer to begin their studies with a detailed consideration of the probable state of trade after the war, recognising that not only the dimensions, but also the character of most of the economic problems will be conditioned by this. A group of-students having first-hand knowledge of a particular industry might well make an intensive, all-round study of that industry, considering, fragment by fragment, what will be the probable position after the war, as regards prosperity, employment, wages, prices, working conditions, organisation, State control, etc., each student in turn preparing a paper upon one aspect of the problem. Yet another Study-circle or Tutorial Class might decide to construct its own ' Peace-book ' for its own locality, elaborating a survey of the anticipated condition ot the local industries and the local Labour Market, the organisation of public work, the needs as regards housing, schools, roads, etc. ; perhaps putting the resulting provisional conclusions and suggested remedies" before the local public through the local newspapers. The following pages have been arranged to suit the convenience of the greatest number of students of ordinary knowledge and average capacity. The firs-t section deals with the immediate problems of Demobilisation, including not only the Disbandment of the Army and of the Munition and other War Workers, but also those problems of Unemployment, Wages, Prices, Labour Conditions, Women's Work, etc., which will become urgent, spontaneously, upon the cassation of hostilities. The second section of the book, styled "Reconstruction," considers those larger measures of commercial, industrial, financial and social reorganisation which—as it seems to us—the gigantic proportions of the coming crisis require. Many subjects (e.g., Agriculture, Population, Health, Housing, Eirink, the Distribution of Commodities, the Administration of the Industrial Commonwealth) have had to be omitted. We suggest that it would be good practice for any Student Group or Study Circle to prepare its own notes, queries, forecasts and proposals on the subjects that we have omitted, drawing them from inquiry, conversation, newspapers, books, speeches and reflection; in the same way as is done here for the twelve subjects chosen as most urgent. The subject to which, above all others, we desire to draw attention is that entitled "Can We Effect a Revolution in B
