Government by Cooperation

Excerpt

The present account of Government by Cooperation in the United States is an attempt to show how widespread this movement has become. While certain instances of cooperation on the part of government officials are matters of common knowledge and need no description, there are many others that are not generally known; and there is no systematic account of the movement as a whole.

Part One is introductory to the remaining chapters, and covers familiar ground. In Part Two, dealing with conditions as they exist today, the leading topics are, cooperation between the national government and the states, interstate cooperation, legislative, executive, and judicial in nature, inter-departmental cooperation in city, state, and nation, the cooperation of private business interests, with the permission of the government, both at home and abroad, and international cooperation.

I gratefully acknowledge several suggestions from Professor Dorothy Schaffter of Vassar College; and especially am I indebted to my wife, who has assisted me in many ways and offered numerous suggestions. Also I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Lucy M. Salmon Fund of Vassar College for its assistance in the publication of this book.

EMERSON DAVID FITE. Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York, February 8, 1932.
