Cooperative Palestine: The Story of Histadrut, by Samuel Kurland, Natl. Comm. for Labor Palestine, 1947, 276 pp. $3.00 – A semi-official history of the Palestine trade union federation, by the Director of the Labor Palestine Information Bureau. Therefore emphasizes informational and factual background and description, with a minimum of interpretation and criticism – for example, it gives a complete whitewash to Histadrut’s policy toward Arab labor. But useful in its wide coverage of the varied activities carried on by one of the most unusual of labor federations.
