divided into two parts. Part One, entitled "The Humbling of the
Farmers," covers the period from 1865 to 1896 in five sections;
Part Two, entitled "The Emergence of Imperial America," covers
the period since 1896. There are sixteen workable maps and charts,
nine well-chosen illustrations, and thirty-seven illustrative tables
which make the book very serviceable and useful.

Hellenic History, by Botsford and Robinson (New York: The
Macmillan Company, 1939, pp. xiv, 398, $4.50) is really a revised
and rewritten edition of George Willis Botsford's Hellenic History
done by Charles Alexander Robinson, Associate Professor of Greek
and Latin Classics in Brown University. Twenty-six chapters, a
select bibliography, and an index together with seventy-two plates,
eight figures and seventeen maps make up the book. Its story is
well written and should be interesting not only to college students
but to the general reader.

In his shorter revised edition of the second volume of A Political
and Cultural History of Modern Europe (New York: The Mac-
millan Company, 1939, pp. xii, 865, $4.00) Professor Hayes has
given college classes a very good book. Three chapters cover the
period of Liberal and Romantic Europe, 1830-1870, five portray
Europe through the period of democracy and realism, 1870-1910,
and the remaining six chapters picture Europe under the general
title of An Embattled and Nationalist World Since 1910. Among
the general useful aids of the book are its seventy-eight illustrations
and its thirty-two maps, while for many readers the eight genealog-
ical charts will be very helpful. In view of their contemporary
nature the chapters, "Democracies and Dictatorships" and "Inter-
national Order and Disorder," should be easy of comprehension by
college students, while the chapter, "Cosmos and Chaos," in the
light of present happenings, may be very prophetic.
