known friar, describe the struggle of the Flemish with Philip
IV of France. Occurring in a period marked by a changing
economic and social order, Annales Gandenses has universal ap-
peal, especially to moderns who have lost perspective.
Methuen's History of the Greek and Roman World, a work
of seven volumes in the process of completion and revision,
offers A History of the Greek World from 323 to 146 B. C. The
author, M. Cary, has revised this volume (III) on the basis of
the studies of Rostovtzeff and Tarn. The work is important to
readers who wish to follow the results of intensive research in the
Hellenistic Age in conjunction with a narrative account of Greek
history during this period. In addition, the Methuen set has
added a revision of Volume IV, H. H. Scullard, A History of the
Roman World, 753-146 B. C. Primarily political in approach
the work goes into military, social, and economic history with
an emphasis upon up-to-date information on some of the con-
troversial phases of the period before the fourth century B. C.
The author gives an excellent narrative account of the history
of Rome from the earliest times to the age of the great conquests.
The Methuen studies in Greek and Roman history should have
an appeal to Texans inasmuch as the late Professor F. B. Marsh
of the History Department of the University of Texas wrote
Volume V, A History of the Roman World, r46-3o B. C.
