Summary: Good citizenship starts with you! This crucial collection of real guidance from government, civics, and scouting handbooks of the 1920s-1960s shows you how - through proper dental hygiene, a pleasant demeanor, and obedience of even minor laws - you can ensure the health and happiness of nation, neighbor, and kin. Hundreds of illustrations, charts, and tips compiled for a better world, a better community, a better you. Learn the importance of good posture, the benefits of taxation, and simple ways to avoid infection! Understand, too, just how dangerous slouching is to national character. There's simply too much at stake.

My rating: 7/10.
