Book Notes and Acknowledgments
pany, 1938, pp. xvii, 1039, $4.00, maps), the third edition of this
well-known textbook has appeared. The present edition is revised
and enlarged by Richard H. Bassett, a son of the late Professor
Bassett. Two chapters, namely, "The World Economic Depres-
sion" and "The New Deal," have been added to the second revised
edition for the years since 1929, while another chapter, "Social
Developments, 1865-1917," has been inserted before the chapter
on the World War. The new chapters are quite readable and in-
formative. Three maps have been removed from the new edition,
but there are still twenty-six in the book.

In A General History of the United States Since 1865 (New
York: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1939, Pp. xxvii, 654, $4.50) Professor
George Frederick Howe tells the story of the United States from
the collapse of the Confederacy until the adjournment of Congress
in 1938. The emphasis throughout is upon the economic phase of
the period in which the author has clearly and forcefully dealt
with money, labor, the Great Depression, and the New Deal.
Scant attention is given to the social and cultural aspects, while
the Great West hardly receives the attention it deserves. Much of
the political narrative is rather abbreviated. A general bibliograph-
ical note appears at the beginning of the book while a well selected
list follows the narrative in each chapter. Some twenty maps and
illustrations further enhance the usefulness of the volume. On the
whole, this book will have its appeal as a text for survey courses
and for the general reader.

the present edition is a reprint from the original plates.
