This 1846 work, by Fourierist Mathieu Briancourt, was translated into English by Francis George Shaw in 1847. A condensed Précis de l'organisation du travail was also published in France. The work explains in a more familiar setting the principles laid out by Charles Fourier in "Appendix A" of his The Theory of Four Movements.<ref>See The Lesson of the Pear-Growers' Series for some discussion of these principles.</ref> Orestes Brownson included an extended review of the work in the January 1848 issue of Brownson's Quarterly Review.
