MACVEAGH, FANNY DAVENPORT (ROGERS) (Mrs. Charles

MacVeagh). Fountains of Papal Rome. New York:

Charles Scribner's Sons, 1915. Pp. xiv, 312. $2.50. “The fountains of Rome are in themselves title-pages to Roman history.” With this conclusion Mrs. MacVeagh closes the introduction to her book. Pagan emperors and Christian popes have constructed fountains and aqueducts in Rome so that the eternal city has the most abundant water supply of any place in the world. Probably only the Moors have so appreciated the value and beauty of water. These constructions even if we are denied the galleries and churches, the catacombs and hidden recesses, the old ruins and remains, give us a splendid introduction to Roman history and take us back into the days of the Renaissance, of the counter reformation, of the Napoleonic era, and of the great Risorgimento.

Mrs. VacVeagh recites the history of the building of over a sc are to-day. Rudolph Ruzicka has furnished fourteen fullpage wood engravings of the fountains described. Ap pended are translations of inscriptions found on some of these fountains; a chronological index of aqueducts and popes mentioned in the book; and an alphabetical list of architects, sculptors, painters, and engravers to which reference is made. There is no general index. The book is well written and printed, and should delight the student in tensely interested in the history of the Eternal City.

PERIODICAL LITERATURE EDITED BY GERTRUDE BRAMLETTE RICHARDS, PH.D.

The last number of the “ Edinburgh Review " has an able article by the Dean of Durham Cathedral on “ Church and State in England.” According to the writer. the war is hastening the pace of the movement of the Church of England to a great revolution of status and type. The profound internal dissidence of the Church of England is its salient characteristic; it can never be formally recognized, and in all official proceedings it is almost necessarily ignored, although it has existed since the Tractarian movement.

[ocr errors]

Myron T. Herrick writes again on “ The Federal Farm Loan Act,” this time in “ The Atlantic " for February. His opposition to the act is based on the general ignorance and disregard of essentials in both fact and principle shown in its adoption. However, the analysis of the act given by Mr. Herrick is fair and quite thorough.

Professor Jeremiah W. Jenks discusses " The Chinese Attitude Toward Japan” most ably in the February “Scribner's." The article is written after the author's visit to China to ascertain the attitude of the Chinese people toward Japan, and in it he presents the patriotic and practical objections to Japanese plans for the development of Chinese resources.

The February “Century” is of unusual interest to historians. M. Jules Bois, a member of the staff of the “ Figaro," of Paris, who is lecturing in this country, writes on “ France and America, Partners; ” Herbert Adams Gibbons contributes a stirring appeal to the Allied Nations in the third of his series of articles on the problems of reconstruction in Europe, in “ Constantinople, Principle or Power; ” Arthur Gleason, who is now studying labor conditions in Eng. land, embodies his conclusions in an article entitled, “ The Social Revolution in England; ” Harold Killock writes on “ Fair Play for the Railroads; ” Major J. B. Merwin, a friend of President Lincoln's, tells of “Lincoln and Peter Cartwright," and George Creel, a vigorous and whole. hearted supporter of the present administration, writes on “ Can a Democratic Government Control Prices ?

Walter Hale gives an interesting account of trench life in his article, “My Two Visits to Verdun," which appears in the February “Harper's."

“The Feasibility of the President's Peace Program ” (" Literary Digest” for February 3) is a careful analysis of the President's message to the Senate and of the conditions which it meets.

William Minkel's article on “Living Conditions in Germany and Austria ” in the “ Review of Reviews " for February is perhaps the most authentic account of the food situation in Germany which has yet appeared. It represents the German food supply as being well husbanded, but not in the least degree in danger of being exhausted.

“ The Outlook " for January 24, publishes Alfred Noyes' “ The Lion of Flanders,” a true history of the slave raids in Belgium. This vigorous and sternly accusing article is evidently based on an accurate and painstaking study of the subject from the point of view of all available information.

Arno Dosch-Fleurot's “In a Dugout on Douaumont” ( World's Work” for February) is one of the most vivid descriptions of the battlefield around Verdun which has appeared as yet.

Hon. Bertrand Russell's “ Political Ideals ” in the February “North American” is an excellent exposition of the purpose of all government.

The Department of Education of the State of Alabama has issued a pamphlet upon “ Good Roads,” and also on “ The Celebration of Arbor Day,” showing how to treat the surface of a country road, how to plant a tree, and giving facts concerning the value of good roads and the planting of trees.

Hazen's Modern European History

By C. D. Hazen, Professor in Columbia University. (American
Historical Series.) vii+619 pp. Large 12mo., 155 Illustrations,

26 Maps in Color, $1.75 In accordance with the prevailing tendency in the arrangement of courses in modern history in schools, this high-school text-book devotes itself in the bulk of its material to the history of Europe from 1789 to 1914. An introductory chapter, broadly conceived, sketches in bold outline the conditions that existed in the leading European countries in the eighteenth century, which culminated in the French revolution.

Nine chapters are then devoted to the Revolution and to the Napoleonic era. After the downfall of Napoleon, several chapters describe events in Europe as a whole, where such events are closely related in the various countries, and then the histories of the Great Powers and of the lesser states are treated separately so as to bring out their continuous development.

The last two chapters deal with the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, and with the European War of 1914.

Fite's History of the United States

By E. D. FITE, Professor in Vassar College. vi+575 pp. 12mo.

110 Illustrations. 44 Maps, $1.60

In this high-school textbook the social and industrial development of the country, economic progress, sources and effects of immigration, conditions on the ever-receding frontier, and changes in governmental forms, both national and local, have received special attention. Some of the other subjects of special emphasis are, in the period of exploration and discovery, the development of geographical knowledge; and in the colonial period, the dependence of events in the colonies upon contemporary English history, and the close connection between the West Indies and the mainland as parts of the same colonial empire.

The peace movement and foreign relations, particularly the PanAmerican movement, have been stressed. Recent history, which is often slighted for the period since 1865. occupies more than one-fourth of the book, a large share being devoted to the period since 1900.
