Six essays on the use of Marxist philosophy attributed to workers and peasants.
Contents: 1. Raising Peanut Yields, by Yao Shih-chang; 2. Applying Philosophy in Transport, by the crew of a 150-ton trailer truck, Shanghai; 3. Weather Keepers for the Revolution, by Chungtso County Weather Station Workers, Kwangsi Chuang Autonomous Region; 4. Keeping Vegetables Fresh, by the Peking Chungwen District Vegetable Station Scientific Experiment Group; 5.
