Samuel G. Inman, and Louis M. Sears. Economic conditions in
the Caribbean area and diplomacy arising from guano in Latin-
America are presented by Prof. Clarence F. Jones, Charles D.
Kepner, and Prof. Roy F. Nichols. Social, educational, and
literary topics are dealt with in chapters contributed by Dr.
Inman, William F. Montavon, Miss Heloise Brainerd, Dr. C. K.
Jones and Dr. J. A. Robertson. Prof. J. F. Rippy, Dr. F. Gil
Borges, and Prof. C. C. Tansill contribute chapters on Latin-

under survey. However, since the general subject of the lectures
is much narrower in scope than that in the first volume, there is
evident a much greater unity in the lectures and, correspond-
ingly, more of a permanent contribution than is the case with
the lectures in Volume II. Not the least contribution of the lec-
tures in this volume is that they serve to focus attention upon a
number of knotty and more or less related problems in the

Drs. Inman and C. F. Jones. In four chapters Dr. Leland
