Monograph consisting of three parts. The first part surveys the introduction of machine methods of farming (11 pages). The second part consists of six chapters analyzing the impact of machinery on farm production (17 pages). The final part (eight chapters) explores the impact of farm machinery as labor saving device (63 pages). There are ten tables of statistics related to farm production in an appendix. The monograph is laden with data and has an index. As the author states in a preface, “In the preparation of the paper I have been careful to avoid trying to prove a theory, preferring rather to let the data tell their own story.”
