BOOK REVIEWS

EDITED BY PROFESSOR WAYLAND J. CHASE,
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN.

BULLARD, ARTHUR. The Diplomacy of the Great War. New York: The Macmillan Co., 1916. Pp. xii, 344. $1.50.

In preparing this volume the author has tried to present the main facts in an elementary and clear fashion for the general reader. For the most part he has been very successful. He has divided his book into four parts. Part I (160 pages) is a survey of the diplomatic history of Europe since 1878. Occasionally, as in dealing with the Treaty of Berlin, the author presupposes more knowledge of the facts than the average reader is likely to have; but as a whole this survey is excellent. The author expresses himself clearly, uses excellent human illustrative material which is easily understood, and is careful to show the points of view not merely of various nations, but rather of different parties within each of the great nations. He leans slightly toward the Allies, especially the French, but shows up their weak points very frankly. Part II (56 pages) deals with new problems with which diplomacy now has to do more than ever before, such as "the principle of nationality," the economic struggles of nations, colonial rivalries, and the growth of keener public opinion. Part III (62 pages) is pure hypothesis, the author says. In it he suggests solutions that may possibly come as results of the war. Part IV (46 pages) "deals with the diplomatic relations be

[graphic]

tween the United States and Europe." Here the author tells how the war has affected our diplomacy already, and is likely further to affect it. A select bibliography with a description of each book follows the text.

Mr. Bullard has written an excellent book which should fill a real demand for clear statements of facts and suggestive ideas. It seems to the reviewer to be the most impartial and the best brief book of its kind. It will be very useful for reading references in high school courses on modern European history and for the information of the average American. CLARENCE PERKINS.

ADAMS, JOHN QUINCY. Writings of. Edited by W. C. Ford. Vol. VI, 1816-1819. New York: Macmillan Co., 1916. Pp. xxvii, 573. $3.50.

This volume falls easily into two parts. The first 184 pages contain correspondence while Adams was Minister in London, the remainder of the book, letters written while he was Secretary of State, most of them from Washington. The diplomatic interest of the first part is slight, as Adams had before this period concluded the convention of 1815, and secured no more important results while he was Minister. Of more interest, and indeed of some present timeliness, are his observations on the state of Europe, and particularly of England, after the great wars. While discounting as exaggerated much of the talk of distress, he nevertheless thought that England would be forced to some form of debt repudiation (98, 146). He was impressed with the political unity of Europe, and alarmed at the special characteristics of that union (247-248). His own views, as regards the United States, intensified in their sturdy nationalism (138). Of passing interest are suggestions made to him that we purchase certain Danish islands in the East Indies and the rumor that we were negotiating for a Neapolitan island (100-101).

The chief contribution of the second portion is to the South American question. Although the letters add nothing definite to our knowledge, they demand the attention of students of that field. The letters relating to other diplomatic issues are of no particular importance. Not so those relating to Adams' administration of his office. Where Adams, for the first time in his life found himself driven by work, one wonders, and others expressed wonder at the time, how Monroe managed, or later Clay. He can only suggest that they must have had a greater degree of facilité de travail, which does not seem likely. He was still opposed, as he had been, to long residences abroad, particularly in the case of "young Americans," but he had abandoned his view of the desirability of missions to small countries, and supported the Republican policy of a service as much restricted as possible, though he favored large salaries. His letters of admonition to young men in the service are quite as candid as those to his sons at school. It must have required talent to love him. The last eight pages contain a discussion of the question of "first calls " between department heads and members of Congress-and their wives. If one were not under the necessity of taking what Adams says absolutely at its face value, it would seem that he side-stepped prettily.

The editing, while continuing to be irreproachable within the limits which the editor placed upon himself, still leaves something to be desired. On page 28, Adams is allowed in one paragraph to refer to the number of slaves mentioned in a certain deposition as "seventy-one " and " twenty-one," and the reader is left in doubt as to which is correct. While cross-reference is made in the case of letters previously printed in the "American State Papers," no mention is made of a previous printing in the "American Historical Review "

(XI, 88-116) of certain letters to Alexander Everett. This is the more curious as the printing of the letters is not precisely identical ("Am. Hist. Review," XI, 106, was," "Writings," VI, 200, were "), and the letters are given in full in the "Review," whereas they are cut (omission indicated) in the "Writings." CARL RUSSELL FISH. University of Wisconsin.

ANDERSON, DICE ROBINS. William Branch Giles: A Study in the Politics of Virginia and the Nation from 1790 to 1830. Menasha, Wis.: George Banta Publishing Co., 1914. Pp. xv, 271. $1.50.

This book serves two purposes: It recites on many of its pages the development of political ideas and parties in national politics at an interesting period of our history. And, it gives an adequate appraisal of one of the public men of Virginia whose career the author believes others have not been able fully to appreciate, and may have in a measure misrepresented. That Dr. Anderson has not succeeded in provoking admiration of his subject is a tribute to his faithful presentation of Giles' life. The real service that Giles, who for a quarter of a century was a member of Congress, was the assistance he gave to the organization of the Republican party and its maintenance in power. The success that Jefferson had in making of Giles a political supporter is another evidence of his greatness as a leader. But at first a friend of Madison, he broke with the administration and for the rest of his political life he was in a measure a free lance. After retiring from active politics for a decade, he became governor of the State, and later a member of the constitutional convention of 1829, with nothing especially striking to mark his return to politics. At best he can be rated as an interesting politician who was locally important.

But this biography serves perhaps a still better purpose than the telling of Giles' life. The local situation in Virginia in its relation to national politics is illustrated again and again in an interesting and instructive way. Jefferson's political organization, the effect of Jay's treaty on Virginia, an account of the hostility of the judiciary to Jefferson, effect of the embargo on the South, cause of opposition to the re-charter of the bank in 1811-the discussion of these throws a stimulating light on already well known facts.

Reference to Ritchie on page 181 as "One, Thomas Ritchie" is hardly up to the dignity of the rest of the narrative. A few misspelled words (pages 173, 176) escaped the proofreader. Similar studies of the lives of other public men who may not have been original in politics or leaders in their party will serve to correct and broaden impressions which our general histories have made.

HENDERSON, ERNEST F. A Short History of Germany. New York: The Macmillan Co., 1916. Two volumes. Pp. xi, 517; vii, 604. $3.50 per set.

In this revised edition the author presents three new chapters full of vital, timely material exceedingly illuminative of the characteristics of this nation. The first of these is entitled, "Political Developments from 1871 to 1914," and recounts the hostilities between Church and State in the Kulturkampf, the rise of the Social Democracy and the government's relation to this group, the beginnings of colonial interests, the formation of the Dreibund, the fall of Bismarck, the imperial administration of AlsaceLorraine, and the government's solutions of the Danish and Polish problems. The chapter, "Economic Progress be

[graphic]

I

tween 1871 and 1914," reveals the manifold ways in which the German people have been organized to achieve the commercial and industrial efficiency which has caused wonder in some sections of the world and apprehension in others. "Social Progress between 1871 and 1914" is the last of the new chapters, and here Germany's watchful care over her citizens from the cradle to the grave is plainly set forth.

This work has long been considered by most competent judges the best in this field for the high school library, and the author's extension of its scope to 1914 has greatly enhanced its value for the history teacher and his pupils.

SANFORD, ALBERT H. The Story of Agriculture in the United States. Boston: D. C. Heath & Co., 1916. Pp. iv, 394. $1.00.

This is a history of the American farmer as well as of farming in America, telling how he lived as well as how he made his living, and presenting a series of descriptions of rural society in colonial New England, the Middle States, the South, the "back country," and along the frontier. Not only does the narrative make clear to how great a degree the American farmer has made his country's history, but also many of our leading statesmen are shown to its readers as farmers and earnest students of agriculture. Thus Washington, Jefferson, Livingston and Webster are seen, and Franklin appears as the advocate of agricultural education for young men. Following the descriptions of social conditions comes a series of short chapters describing the development of agricultural machinery, life on the range and the ranch, the growth of animal husbandry and dairying, the forms of agriculture peculiar to different sections, the hard times prevailing among farmers in the eighties and nineties of the last century, agriculture in our island possessions, together with similar aspects of the subject. The narrative is clear, the author's selection of material is excellent, and the abundant pictures and sketch maps are well chosen and well made. It will make an excellent reader for schools in rural communities, a serviceable book in public libraries, and good supplementary material for pupils in American history.

FIFE, ROBERT HERNDON. The German Empire Between Two Wars. A Study of the Political and Social Development of the Nation Between 1871 and 1914. New York: Macmillan Co., 1916. Pp. xiv, 400. $1.50. At the present time when Germany is either being extravagantly praised or vigorously cursed, a sane, informing and readable account of recent Germany is welcome. Dr. Fife has not written a war book, though he felt it important to start with a survey of German foreign relations and ambitions for expansion. To this he has devoted the first hundred pages, and has given a very clear and fair account. He seems inclined to sympathize with the German point of view, but he does not rave. Perhaps his task was easier because he has not touched the immediate causes of the outbreak of war in 1914.

"Part II. The Empire at Home" deals with government and politics, and economic and social conditions in various sections of Germany. Here Dr. Fife deprecates the vast power of the conservative and feudal land owners, but shows himself optimistic over the growth of industrialism and liberalism. Part III is entitled, "The Empire's Problems." Here the author takes up the growth and influence of the Social Democrats, the power wielded by the Roman Catholic Church in German politics owing to the skilful organization of the Center Party, and the problems of dealing with Alsace-Lorraine and the Poles.

[ocr errors]

In some respects Part IV is the best section of the book. Here Dr. Fife gives an excellent brief account of German city government and municipal socialistic activities, German schools and the problem of religious teaching in them, and the press and its influence over public opinion. Much of this material is very illuminating. Dr. Fife throughout shows a very thorough grasp of his subject and a very friendly attitude toward Germany and things German, and yet he does not hesitate to criticize what he feels deserves it, specially the undemocratic features of German government and the many phases of individual activity which it controls. The book deserves to be widely read and should be purchased by libraries. It will be very useful as reference reading for the more mature high school students, both of history and German.

SLATER, GILBERT. The Making of Modern England. New revised edition. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin Co., 1915. Pp. xli, 308. $2.00.

This is a book on England during the last hundred years. It is written by the head of Ruskin College, the Oxford College for working-men, and has evidently grown out of a series of lectures on labor conditions, life of the people, and social progress. In consequence it stresses throughout the condition of the working classes, the rise of labor organizations, and problems of labor as such. The revised edition contains two admirable introductory chapters on England at the Beginning of the Eighteenth Century' and The Transformation of England in the Eighteenth Century," besides an introductory note by Prof. James T. Shotwell.

[ocr errors]
[ocr errors]

The book is neither a political history nor an economic history, but a series of studies which give a fairly connected view of the real progress and development of the English people. The best of the studies are probably those on the condition of the common people. The two in the new introductory chapters are supplemented by two others on the rural worker and the urban worker a hundred years ago. Social reforms after 1815, such as the abolition of death penalties, receive far less attention than do the organization of labor unions and the early legalization of combinations of labor. Three chapters are given to the reforms in the poor laws in municipal organization, and in the factory laws, which followed the parliamentary reform in 1832.

Although comparatively little attention is paid to Ireland before 1850, Dr. Slater brings out with startling clearness the fact that after the famines (1845-1848) "the people starved not in consequence of a deficiency in the total quantity of food, but purely because their contracts with the landlords compelled them to send the food out of the country [in order to pay their rents], instead of consuming it themselves." In a later chapter, Dr. Slater considers the Irish question from the standpoint of the Irish people rather than of the parliamentary relief acts. In discussing changes in British industry, Dr. Slater shows the effect of America and Germany. "The influence of American industrial development upon that of our own country has been direct and powerful," especially in the case of the American trust which has forced English manufacturers to use larger plants. "America has also influenced the business methods of Great Britain by shaking them out of their conservatism." "The influence of Germany on contemporary British industrial development has been less direct, but even more important than that of America." Co-operation among German workmen and German technical and university training are particularly

[graphic]

noted. In these days it is a pleasure to have an Englishman acknowledge that "the whole of our movement for technical education is a frank imitation of the German example," even if the words were penned before the opening of the great European war.

Dr. Slater not only devotes a chapter to free trade at the time the corn laws were repealed, but considers the question again in connection with the tariff controversies of recent years. He contends that even under the protectionist argument, conditions in England favor free trade rather than protection, but he does not emphasize the fact that England benefited chiefly from free trade because her industries developed earlier than those of other countries.

There is an interesting chapter on public elementary education during the middle of the last century, but nothing on recent educational controversies. The influence of the education of girls on the demand for something better than the old "patriarchal" family laws is brought out. One is disappointed that nothing is said about the important social reforms which the Liberal Ministry has made since 1906.

In its American form the book is intended for college students. It is time that more college men and women understood this side of English history, usually neglected by English historians. For a clear understanding of the story, however, either they will need in addition a better knowledge of English history than college students have or they must use this book side by side with some more formal account of events in England during the last hundred years. To supply these needs the publishers have included a chronological table covering eighteen pages. An exceedingly helpful bibliography of twenty-three pages by Miss Judith B. Williams is also given. There are several charts and a brief index. Students of social and economic history will welcome this volume, and will hope to see soon similar books on earlier phases of English history and on the history of other countries. R. L. ASHLEY. Pasadena High School.

MACE, WILLIAM H., AND TANNER, EDWIN P. The Story of Old Europe and Young America. Chicago: Rand, McNally & Co., 1915. Pp. 315. 65 cents.

"This little book is an attempt to provide for the sixth grade a suitable text on the European background of American history. The subject matter is, of course, suggested by the Report of the Committee of Eight." The purpose of the authors thus stated in their preface has been admirably carried out. The style is attractive, and the vocabulary, while more difficult than it should be in some places, is on the whole adapted to the sixth grade.

The great problem in the making of a book that covers events ranging from Rameses II to Sir Walter Raleigh is the problem of elimination. This has been well solved; and yet there are almost as many names of different persons in the stories as there are working days in the school year. Of course, not all of these persons are strangers to the pupils. Particularly to be commended, for simplicity and charm, are the accounts of Roman life and life in the Middle Ages.

The book is amply supplied with maps, some being double-paged and colored. Illustrations are particularly abundant and well executed. Each section of the book is followed by "Leading Facts," of whose usefulness we have grave doubts; "Study Questions," many of them thoughtprovoking; and "Suggested Readings," a series of helpful references.
