$1.50. It has several good illustrations and is adequately in-
In A History of England (New York: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1938.
Pp. xvi, 843. $4.25.) Professor Galpin has written a thirty-nine
chapter volume in which he has told the story of Great Britain
topically and chronologically. One-third of the chapters are de-
voted to British history since 1815. No attempt has been made
to give details of reigns, of wars, or the activities of various
ministers and advisors of the crown. Emphasis is placed on the
growth of English civilization, the struggle toward democracy,
and economic security. The book is a history of the English
people simply presented with the developments accented by topic
heads and should be interesting to the average reader.
Genealogical tables, maps, charts, and a number of illustrations
are included. Bibliographies are found at the end of each chapter.
A list of prime ministers with dates and parties and a list of
parliaments of the United Kingdom are appended.

Originally appearing in 1918 in two separate volumes, W. C.
Abbott's The Expansion of Europe saw its first revised edition in
1924. These two editions carried the story only to 1789. The
present edition, the second revised edition, carries the story to
1815 and contains the two volumes bound together. The new
edition shows the sub-title, A Social and Political History of the
Modern World, 1:415-1815, and reveals in its brief preface that
various suggestions for revision have been accepted and that the
bibliography has been brought more nearly to date. F. S. Crofts
& Co. may well find that the two volumes bound in one will be
more useful and convenient.
