Excerpt from The American Workman

Emile Levasscur, the author of the "American Workman," is a sincere and earnest man. The position he has occupied for more than a generation in the learned circles of Europe he owes not alone to his industry, knowledge and faculty for expression, but to a penetrating intellect and an unusual quality of final judgment of principles and events. It is valuable to have the vast material embraced in the present study pass through the mind of such a man, and to have his pronouncements upon the important questions raised. It will be found that he has brought to the task an admirable understanding of America and sympathy with it. His comprehensive knowledge of the past and of cotemporary conditions elsewhere and his long experience as a leader of thought in his own country enable him to give to the subject a proper perspective. Moreover the tribute he pays to American ingenuity and progress comes with better grace from him and bears a stamp of greater impartiality than if emanating from one of our own citizens.

The translator, Thomas S. Adams, is a thoroughly trained economist. His work has been faithfully and ably done. Added value has been given the study by the degree to which Mr. Adams has enlarged the statistics. So far as possible all statistics have been brought down to date. Where the early figures had no particular significance, they were simply replaced by later ones. In other cases a new note has been added or an old one expanded. The additions of the translator are noted thus: [Tr.]

Professor Richard T. Ely brings to the attention of the editor the fact that his "Labor Movement in America" referred to by Professor Levasseur was written nearly fifteen years ago, that not merely have conditions changed since then, but that he has modified somewhat the opinions expressed therein.
