"Russia and Liberalism" is an interesting presentation by Angelo S. Rappoport-also in the February "Review.” During her early history, the writer points out, Russia was democratic; Russian autocracy is not a development from within, but is an artificial growth resulting from Mongol, Byzantine, and lastly-Prussian influence. present European war will sweep away Russian absolutism, and "from the mist of carnage will arise a regenerated Russia, inspired, animated by the Slavonic spirit of democracy, of tolerance and freedom, a Russia who will be the true friend and ally of Constitutional England and of Republican France."

In an article entitled, "The European War and Geography" ("Educational Review," March), Robert M. Brown, of the Providence, Rhode Island, State Normal School, shows that though the present war is likely to change the map of Europe, there are, nevertheless, many geographical questions which may be studied at the present time with especial interest and profit. Among these are the following: The difference between physical and artificial boundary lines; the problem of distance as a barrier; the part played by man in overcoming natural barriers; international highways; climate; self-sustenance of nations; economic effects of the war upon neutral countries.

Current History and Outline Maps

Teachers of history and geography have at the present time the most remarkable opportunity ever presented to a pedagogue. The morning newspaper brings into prominence towns and localities almost unknown to American students, and geographical relationships of a new and amazing character become the subject of common conversation on the street corners. The history of nations and of races is reviewed by every weekly paper or monthly magazine. Analogies and comparisons between historical and present events are drawn by reporters and syndicate writers with a courage deserving of the Polish firing-line.

The problem for the teacher is not to awaken an interest in current events, but to control that interest which has already been called into life by head-lines, Sunday illustrated supplements, the "movies," and semi-scientific magazine articles. The accounts of events need to be read, digested, criticized, and made the student's own possession. There should be some come-back on the pupil's part-some thought and work which will put into word or color or arrangement the facts which pass so quickly before him.

Many devices will accomplish this end, but when the purpose is to show geographical relationship of historical facts, nothing better can be used than the

Edited by WILLIAM E. DODD, Professor of American History in the University of Chicago
This series presents to college students a brief account and interpretation of the development
of the United States from the beginning to the present time. The economic factors in the shaping
of party and national thinking are stressed, but not to the exclusion of the powerful personal
influences. Social life and group feelings and interests receive unusual consideration, as does also
the intellectual and religious life of the people. One large purpose of the series is to give to
the student perspective.

GEORGE E. HOWARD, Head Professor of Political Science and Sociology, University of Nebraska ; formerly Professor of History, Leland Stanford Junior University:

From every standpoint I regard WEBSTER'S ANCIENT HISTORY as a notable achievement. As a guide to the understanding of the real life of the ancient peoples its value is unique. It is a complete and efficient text for school use. The maps, the illustrations, the source citations, the up-to-date reference lists reveal the trained scholar and the experienced teacher. But the work is more than a text in the conventional sense. It is an independent and well-organized treatment of the period of history with which it deals. The style is attractive; the analysis scientific. In a word, it is an interesting study of the civilization of the oriental and classical peoples. Here, as never before in such a book, the vital questions, the things that are so much more important than battles and pageants, are placed in proper relief. The discussions of manners, customs, and other social institutions are such as only the trained student of primitive society could produce. In his Ancient History the author has rendered a distinct service to American education; and the well-chosen Readings will enable the competent teacher to make a right application of the source-method.
