Some of the ideas contained in this book were first presented in the Pauly Ballroom, University of California, Berkeley, November 7, 1970, as the annual Barbara Weinstock Lecture on the Morals of the Trade. The text of that speech was published in a limited edition by the University of California as Life Before Death in the Corporate State (1971).
The speech was recorded for broadcast, and is available to radio stations from the Pacifica Tape Library (2217 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, California 94704 [no. AP1369]).
Ten brief excerpts were distributed to radio stations by American Report (Clergy and Laymen Concerned, P.O. Box 6676, Washington, D.C. 20009) as its May 8-20, 1972 biweekly, recorded distribution of daily programs.
Elektra Records plans to release an LP based upon the speech entitled “Test Pattern for Living.”
Some of the ideas come from a speech presented as a Poynter Fellow Lecture at Yale University on March 8, 1971 under the title, “The Careening of America.”
A third public performance, at Grinnell College on April 1, 1971, was televised by the Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network on April 12, 1971 under the title “How to Survive in a Corporate Society.”
The title “Test Pattern for Living” was first used in an article published in the Saturday Review, May 29, 1971, pages 12-15 and 33.
That article was recorded for the blind and distributed by Choice Magazine Listening (125 Main Street, Port Washington, New York 10050), Issue 57, Sides 1 and 2, September 1971.
Other material is drawn from “The Life Party,” The New Republic, April 10, 1971, pages 21-23, and a commencement address at Windham College, “Working in a Corporate State,” May 23, 1971.
Although the author has received no payment for any presentation of this material, and will receive no royalties from this book, he wishes to express his appreciation to those who have provided the prior occasions to prepare it, who have taken an interest in its distribution, and who have granted such permissions as were necessary on this occasion.
