Book Reviews

Few persons are familiar enough with the source material
to criticize intelligently that segment of the bibliography. The
author does not indicate whether his extensive, annotated bib-
liography of secondary works includes all of the material con-
sulted; probably he intended to include only that which proved
most helpful to him. A list of published articles too large to

patriarch, who was born on September 19, 1737, and died on
November 14, 1832, lived a very rich life in behalf of political
principles and social ideals.
To list only a part of Carroll's many achievements and serv-
ices would suffice to extend this review well beyond a con-
