Japanese Aircraft 1910-41 by Robert C. Mikesh & Shorzoe Abe (£51.00)Publisher: London: Putnam Aeronautical Books — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851778402]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a few small indentations toward the top of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Japanese Aircraft 1910-1941 will almost certainly come to be regarded as one of the truly outstanding works of aviation history. In the preface the authors state ‘For the vast number of Japanese aeroplane types that were built during the period covered by this book, it is disappointing that more has not been written in English about them’.

As a result of massive research the authors have now corrected this shortcoming. The names Kawasaki, Mitsubishi, Nakajima and a few others are well known but this work includes descriptions of the products of large numbers of companies and organisations that are known only to a few people outside of Japan.

The aeroplanes covered here range from the single type produced by the Awazu Flight Research Studio, include as would be expected the proliferation of Aichis, Kawanishis, Kawasakis, Mitsubishis and Nakajimas, and ends in alphabetical order with the products from the Naval Air Arsenal at Yokosuka.

Including early privately-built aeroplanes and those produced under licence, this work covers nearly 400 types. Appendices include aircraft of the Pacific war, a comparison of calendars, a bibliography and a glossary.”

Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance by Antony Brown (£44.00)Publisher: Granta Editions — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857570332]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: Map of the earthquake zones of the world illustrating the geography of catastrophes which form the basis of Greig Fester’s business. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Graphs; Tables; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “THE story of Greig Fester is the story of reinsurance — perhaps the most intriguing aspect of international insurance and the one most frequently involved in world news. Reinsurance is the means by which insurance companies insure themselves against the possibility of catastrophic losses. This is why the history of Greig Fester, one of the few Lloyd’s brokers to specialise in reinsurance, is often one of natural disasters ranging from floods and hurricanes to earthquakes. It follows the fortunes of the company formed 75 years ago by a remarkable Scots insurance man, and relates how it was later merged with a cosmopolitan firm whose European connections could hardly have been more in contrast.

Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance will, we believe, be a formidable addition to the growing library of books which guide the general reader through the mysterious and fascinating world of international insurance.”

An Invaluable Treasure : A History of the TSB by Michael Moss & Iain Russell (£22.00)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297811185]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper which is lightly spotted on the reverse. Small pen mark (not remainder) to the fore and bottom edge of the text block. Boards lightly dusty. Text complete, clean and tight but the heavier art paper has become a little tacky in places. Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “The TSB group traces its origins back almost two hundred years to the beginning of the nineteenth century when in the small Dumfriesshire village of Ruthwell the Reverend Henry Duncan founded the first savings bank in 1810. Shortly afterwards savings banks were established throughout the United Kingdom by like-minded people who advocated the virtues of thrift in an age when there was little public provision for the vicissitudes of life. From the 1840s their funds were secured by the government, hence the name trustee savings banks.

The savings banks had to compete for custom from the outset with friendly societies, life insurance companies and, from the 1860s, with the Post Office Savings Bank, the brain-child of William Ewart Gladstone. In the face of adversity the savings banks formed an Association to protect their status and secure better services for their customers. By the end of the century savings banks had started to amalgamate, a trend which was to accelerate in the coming years. The savings banks also changed their appeal away from saving for a rainy day to saving for a purpose — the purchase of household goods or a holiday.

During the first and second world wars the savings banks served a crucial role in mobilising personal savings for the war effort, using imaginative poster campaigns. Although the savings banks began to explore the possibility of providing what were in effect commercial banking services in the 1920s, it took over fifty years for the TSBs to come together to form the modern clearing bank.

The development of the TSB into one of Britain’s largest private client banks is a fascinating story of struggle and achievement. Michael Moss and lain Russell trace the origins of the movement back to the late eighteenth century and set the TSBs in the wider context of both spending and saving. They show how the TSBs had on the one hand to join with other thrift and temperance organisations to condemn extravagance and on the other to compete often hard for their custom with these selfsame organisations. They explore the relationship, often uneasy, between the savings banks and the national savings campaign inaugurated during the first world war. They describe the dramatic events leading up to flotation in 1986.

The book is heavily illustrated, particularly with evocative advertisements appealing for savings or warning against the dangers of profligacy..”

The Efficiency Experts: An Impartial Survey of Management Consultancy by Laura Tatham (£18.00)Publisher: Business Publications — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

Silence on Monte Sole by Jack Olsen (£17.00)Publisher: London: Arthur Baker — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0213177943]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a nick to the foot of the spine and bottom corner of the upper panel. Top edge of the text block tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendix; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Relentlessly, dispassionately and brilliantly told, this monumental account of an outrage buried in the atrocities of World War II may become one of the great polemics against war. During World War II, Monte Sole had the misfortune to lie on the main route of withdrawal of the retreating German armies — a route vitally important to Field Marshal Kesselring and to the partisans of the Stella Rossa, headquartered in the hills of Monte Sole.

Under the fierce command of ‘Il Lupo’ (The Wolf), the partisans harassed the Germans by attacking convoys, derailing trains, and once capturing top-secret plans for the German defences on the Gothic line. As the Allied advance stormed up Italy to the very shadow of Monte Sole, Axis frenzy reached its peak. With full authorization of Kesselring and with an infusion of dread SS reinforcements, the Germans deliberately set out to neutralize Monte Sole.

This massacre constitutes the core of Jack Olsen’s book. He interviewed the men and women who were there and miraculously survived and those who remember what took place during the unspeakable butchery of the next three days. Eighteen hundred men, women and children, most of them having had nothing to do with the partisans, were annihilated on Monte Sole. Those who did not die were later blown up by mines sown by the Germans who were determined that Kesselring’s orders be carried out: that Monte Sole be obliterated from the face of the earth.”

A Century in Oil: The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company 1897-1997 by Stephen Howarth (£16.50)Publisher: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297822470]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Tiny nick to the top corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight but with a hint of tanning to the very margins of the leaves. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Cutaways; Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks; From the cover: “No other single industry has affected 20th-century civilization more rapidly or more profoundly than that of oil. The century was nearly half over when the nuclear age began and the computer revolution swept the world. Throughout the 20th century, oil has been the great enabler providing from one basic resource a rainbow range of products.

Based upon unrestricted access to company archives, A Century in Oil marks the 100th anniversary of The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company one of the parents of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group. By most measurements Shell is the largest oil enterprise in the world, and the largest organization of any kind in Europe. In a phenomenal industry, Shell could fairly claim to be a phenomenon in its own right — global in scope but always human in scale. Century in Oil tells the frank and dramatic story of a company — daring, inventive, and sometimes controversial — whose work has touched, and continues to touch, all our daily lives.”

A Review of Current Banking Theory and Practice by S. K. [Saroj Kumar] Basu (£14.50)Publisher: London & Basingstoke: The Macmillan Press — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper.

Description: 2nd (revised by Alak Ghosh, enlarged) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1971] Contains: Tables;

From the cover: “A quiet revolution has been taking place in the theory and practice of central and commercial banking during the last twenty-five or thirty years. It may be of some interest to draw together the experiences of the various countries and integrate the underlying trends as constituting part of a general pattern. As the central bank forms the keystone of the financial structure, recent trends in its role and financial policies have been sought to be interpreted in considerable detail. The changing role of the commercial banks has also been duly stressed. Further, the problems posed by the rise and growth of non-banking financial intermediaries like hire-purchase finance companies and development banks have called for close examination. Lastly, as the working of the international financial system has excited a great deal of controversy and as plans for the reform of the present system, and even for its replacement, have been widely discussed, it has been thought fit to devote some attention to such issues as a ‘central bank for central banks’ and the recently introduced ‘special drawing rights’ system as possible solutions of the problem of international liquidity. Although the coverage of the book extends over both developed and developing countries, the backdrop, by and large, has been the economic and financial structure of the latter with India occupying the centre of the stage.”

Bristol at Work by John Penny (£14.50)Publisher: Derby: The Breedon Books Publishing Company — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1859833551]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small ding to the centre of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Facsimiles;

From the cover: “Bristol’s working life — the foundation of the economy of the city — has never before been the subject of a detailed, highly illustrated history. John Penny’s fascinating account of this vital aspect of the city’s past uses a remarkable selection of rare photographs and other illustrations to record the variety of businesses, trades, industries and services that generated Bristol’s wealth and gave a livelihood to its people. Although dealing with the origins of most of Bristol’s traditional industries, the starting point is really the mid-18th century when a number of concerns were established that flourished locally until the dawn of third millennium. He chronicles the rise and fall of businesses, processes and products that once fuelled the economy of a great city. Chapters are devoted to each of the main types of employment, within which are concise histories of the city’s most important companies and undertakings.

Over the centuries Bristol has established itself as a centre for industries as diverse as tobacco, chocolate, chemicals, brick-making, pottery, ship-building, motorcycles, publishing, banking, insurance, aviation and brewing. Throughout this time the city functioned as one of the foremost ports in the country. Conditions and processes in these trades and industries are described in vivid detail, and the author recalls the generations of Bristolians who spent their lives working in the city. Many readers will be surprised to learn of the huge variety of work carried out locally over the last 150 years and will be reminded of just how many well-known local firms have disappeared within their lifetimes. John Penny’s revealing, thoroughly researched and lively account will be essential reading for everyone who enjoys Bristol’s history.”

The National Wealth: Who Gets What in Britain by Dominic Hobson (£14.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0002559137]Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly soiled and tanned otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “This is the most comprehensive, lucid and authoritative account of the state of the nation since Anthony Sampson’s classic Anatomy of Britain. Starting with a simple question — ‘who owns Britain?’ — Dominic Hobson has created a colossal tour de force: a book which not only ranges across every aspect of wealth and income in Britain today, but also explores the relationship between money, power and status from the Norman Conquest to New Labour. Huge in scope, masterly in presentation, The National Wealth reveals the social, economic and financial (rather than the political or bureaucratic) workings of Britain. It tells us who has the money, and how they get it; and, ultimately, who owns Britain today. The author describes the draining away of money and power from the great estates of the realm such as the Crown, the Aristocracy, the Church and Oxbridge; the aggrandisement of the State in the post-war socialist era, followed by the greatest transfer of ownership in Britain since the Dissolution of the Monasteries — the privatisation of the nationalised industries; the origins of the greatest personal fortunes and the psychology of the truly rich; the rise of the industrial Fat Cats and the new professional elites of the City and the Law. The book concludes with a probing analysis of the relationship between the PLC (the dominant form of social organisation in Britain today) and the great institutional investors who have become the most influential repositories of the national wealth. Throughout, the narrative concentrates on people as well as organisations: on people as voters, taxpayers, patients, students and parents as well as people at play and at work — MPs, civil servants, judges, dons, clergymen, farmers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, architects, doctors and dentists, teachers, army officers, managers, journalists, shopkeepers, publicans, sportsmen, charity-workers and pensioners. The National Wealth is a magnificent summation of Britain at the turn of the century, a panoramic and trenchantly expressed overview of the division of the spoils, and a searching examination of the gap between rhetoric and reality in public and private affairs.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 1350 pages.

Modern Jet Aircraft by Michael J. H. Taylor (£14.00)Publisher: Hamlyn — 1984Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0600347400]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Scattered marks to the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Modern jet aircraft, both civil and military, have brought about radical changes in our concept of business and leisure travel and in the tactics and strategy of aerial warfare. Michael J. H. Taylor’s lavishly illustrated book describes and analyzes those aircraft which are in service today and explains their developmental history and the impact which they have had.

He begins by tracing the early history of jets from their beginnings before World War II through their rapid development during the post-war period. The United States of America has been, and still is, the most influential nation in the advance to the SR-71 Blackbird, which flies at nearly three times the speed of sound, and the commuter airline which transports its passengers at low cost and with as little trouble as they would experience catching a bus or train. Boeing, Lockheed and McDonnel-Douglas are the three giants of the US aviation industry, famous for their commercial jets such as the 747, L1011 and DC10 as well as their military aircraft like the B-52 bomber and their devastating fighters and ground attack craft. However their achievements do not belittle those of the smaller US companies like Lear who have revolutionized business travel by the introduction of the executive jet. The Soviet Union has also played a major, albeit isolated, role in producing jet aircraft and many of their products compare with those of the West, including the MiG-25 Foxbat, currently the fastest fighter in production. Europe too has developed some remarkable aircraft, often as the result of collaboration between two or more countries, as with the supersonic Anglo-French Concorde airliner and the Italo-German-British Tornado.

This readable and informative book describes all the major jet aircraft in use today, providing information about their technological capabilities, carrying capacity and armament where appropriate in fascinating detail. It is illustrated throughout in colour with more than 150 stunning photographs, making it an invaluable addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in modern civil and military aviation.”

From the cover: “While the design and service histories of warships are well covered in print, until now there has been no single-volume guide to the companies and state yards which built them. This encyclopaedic new work fills that gap, with concise ‘biographies’ of the shipbuilders, describing their corporate development, highlights in their histories, and listing the major ships they built. International in coverage, the book is divided by country, by region and by yard, and is illustrated throughout with maps and plans showing the locations of the builders and the ground layout of the most important shipyards at significant dates in their history. The book also includes details of naval bases and repair facilities, while a general introduction points out the salient features of warship development over three centuries, from wood and canvas to the technology of steam, steel and electronics in order to explain the changes in the world’s shipbuilding industries. This comprehensive guide has a place on the bookshelf of any naval historian or enthusiast.”

The Golden Years of British Steam Trains: Colin Garratt On the Work of A. W. V. Mace by Colin Garratt (£14.00)Publisher: Milepost 92½ — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1900193051]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “The Golden Years of British Steam Trains contains two hundred and fifty glorious pictures, magnificently printed in Duotone recalling the living vitality of the steam age during its most exciting years. The pictures have been chosen by Colin Garratt from the collection of the late Rev. A. W. V. Mace and grouped into sections of the big four companies; L. M. S. , G. W. R. , S. R. and L. N. E. R. These companies operated from 1923 until the formation of British Railways in 1948. This twenty five year period was the high summer of steam railway operation when the most technically advanced designs worked in contrast with a plethora of ancient types dating back to the individual designs of the separate companies of pre 1923.

Arthur Mace travelled widely across Britain capturing the vibrant spirit of this exciting period. The matchless photography contained within these covers rates him as a leading name in the history of railway photography notwithstanding that he was relatively unknown until Milepost took over the responsibility for his pictorial legacy and published the first volume of his work in 1994.”

Why are they always far ahead of competitors in discovering the ever-changing profit zones of their industry?

Why do others languish as their traditional way of doing business turns into a no-profit zone?

The Profit Zone provides the answers. It is a brilliant, original, and practical explanation of how and why high profit happens.

It reveals the profit strategies of twelve of today’s great success stories — a group of companies and executives that have created over $700 billion in market value for their shareholders. More important, it shows the lessons that can be learned from the business design of these companies — adaptations that enabled them to always be several steps ahead of competitors in meeting customer priorities..”

A History of Chocolate in York by Paul Chrystal & Joe Dickinson (£13.00)Publisher: Remember When — 2012Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1844681238]Condition: Very Good. Small, light, spots to the leading edge of the text block otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Think of York and you think of its Minster, mediaeval streets, the railways — and of confectionery, particularly chocolate. Kit Kat, Fruit Gums, All Gold, Butterkist have all been as much a part of British life as the York companies that made them: Rowntree’s, Terry’s and Craven’s.

This new book is the first to chart the history of chocolate and confectionery manufacture and marketing by York companies, from their origins in the eighteenth century, through to the recent takeovers by Nestlé, Tangerine and Kraft.

Revolutionary new products such as Easter eggs in the 1870s and chocolate assortments in the 1890s are covered along with such crucial turn of the century developments as milk chocolate and the chocolate bar. The significance to the industry of the Quaker movement is discussed along with an examination of the impact of the world wars and the intervening depression.

The book is fully illustrated throughout, depicting all aspects of production, quality control, distribution and marketing: the packaging, design and branding developed by the companies broke new ground in branding and became an art form in itself with iconic images that still resonate today.

The book is intended for anyone interested in social history and the history of the food industry in Britain, the Quaker movement and social reform and manufacturing and marketing history; residents of and visitors to York will find in the book a fascinating glimpse of an integral part of York’s past, present and future.”

Counter-Intuitive Marketing by Kevin J. Clancy; Peter C. Krieg; (£13.00)Publisher: Free Press — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0684855550]Condition: Near Fine - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.Description: How Great Results Come from Uncommon Sense. From the flap: “The authors trace the high rate of business failure back to bad marketing strategy, and the even worse implementation of that strategy. Excess testosterone, they argue, compels senior managers to make decisions intuitively, instinctively, quickly, and, unfortunately, disastrously. In this informative and enlightening book, Clancy and Krieg confront these “over-and-over again” marketers, who don’t have time to do it right the first time, but endless time and a company bankroll to do it wrong over and over again. The authors draw from their decades of consumer and business-to-business marketing experience to business-to-business marketing experience to describe the intuitive decision-making practices that permeate business today, and demonstrate how these practices lead to disappointing performance.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

A Golden Adventure: The First 50 Years of Ultramar by Paul Atterbury; Julia MacKenzie; (£12.50)Publisher: Hurtwood Press — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Boards slightly faded at the top edges. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Ultramar was formed in London in 1935 and 1985 is its golden anniversary. This book is the story of the Company — its Golden Adventure. From a small exploration company in Venezuela, it has grown into an integrated oil company operating on five continents.

Oil had been discovered by Ultramar in the hitherto unexplored llanos of central Venezuela just prior to the Second World War, but the outbreak of hostilities in 1939 cut off the availability of funds, equipment and expertise from Europe. Exploration and development came to a halt and the future looked bleak, but Ultramar, always resourceful, found an American partner and went on to develop the Mercedes field.

In the late 1950s, when all the teething problems had finally been resolved and the debts repaid, crude oil prices in the world plunged and Ultramar had to face the reality that there was more to the oil business than finding and producing oil and gas. A critical decision had to be made and typically Ultramar took a bold step. It decided to build and acquire refining, marketing and shipping facilities and become a fully integrated oil company. By the mid 1960s, this had become reality and it is the basic pattern which remains today.

Ultramar quite early foresaw the eventual nationalisation of Venezuelan oil and the consequent loss of its prime source of income. Through the 1960s and early 1970s, the Company gradually expanded its exploration and production activities into Canada, the U. K. , the U. S. and Indonesia. When the Venezuelan income was lost in 1975, Ultramar was able to take it in its stride. In fact, in the last two decades, Ultramar’s profits have risen steadily, and in 1984 attained a pre-tax profit of £285 million and an after-tax profit of £127 million.

The story of Ultramar is largely that of the men and women whose initiative, ambition and determination have made the Company a success..”

Problems in Labor Relations by Benjamin M. Selekman; Sylvia Kopald Selekman; Stephen H. Fuller; (£12.50)Publisher: McGraw-Hill Book Co. — 1958Binding: Hardback Condition: Good+. Gently faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly soiled and tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: 2nd edition. [First Edition: 1950] From the cover: “When the first edition of this book was written in the tense atmosphere of the immediate postwar years, the question may well have been asked whether collective bargaining was an enduring institution. The year 1946, for instance, was marked by repeated, costly strikes in one basic industry after another. Indeed, in a reaction against this thrust of power on the part of new, industry-wide unions, the Taft-Hartley Act was enacted in 1947. It marked a reversal of the trend started with the validation of the Wagner Act by the Supreme Court in 1937. For now trade unions, too, were under surveil lance and could be made subject to charges of unfair labor practices as only management had been under the Wagner Act. Other restrictions were placed upon them by the Federal law, and a number of states enacted even more stringent legislation in the form of so-called “right-to-work” laws.

At this writing, ten years later, it can safely be said that, whatever legisla tion may still be forthcoming, collective bargaining has nevertheless survived as a permanent institution. Hardly any responsible managements would be willing to say now, regardless of their feelings in the past, that they preferred to function without unions or that they could do so even if they so desired. Problems still continue, some of them serious in nature. Whereas in the first five or six years after the war it was repeated strikes, some of an emergency nature, that troubled the nation, now it is “creeping” inflation. Indeed, many observers think that the continuous inflationary trend can be traced in large part to the periodic wage settlements, including fringe benefits, entered into by large unions and large corporations which establish patterns for the econ omy as a whole. The debate goes on as to whether unions are the primary cause of the inflationary trend or whether it is caused by corporations when they translate wage increases into price increases which, it is charged, are greater than just the wage component. To this management replies, ‘Well, surely, prices must be greater than the amount of the wage increase because our wage increase creates a cycle which makes everything we buy cost more. It costs us many times more to replace plants and machinery we built before the inflationary cycle began, not to say anything about raw and semi-finished material’.

The truth of the matter is that problems will always be with us: this or that issue will continuously arise in the highly dynamic industrial environment that characterizes this nation. Collective bargaining does not in itself solve major economic and social problems. What it does provide is a procedure by means of which problems can be identified and handled.”
