British Social Politics
By CARLTON HAYES
Assistant Professor of History in Columbia University
12mo., cloth, 580 pages, $1.75
HIS new volume points out contemporary developments along the lines of social reform and welfare of the working classes in Great Britain.
Within the past seven years there has been a constant succession of important acts: workmen's compensation, trade disputes, labor exchanges, old age pensions, the Lloyd George Budget, the defeat of the House of Lords, national workmen's insurance, etc.
Each important act of this kind is here treated in a special chapter, its historical setting explained, and extracts from some of the liveliest Parliamentary speeches inserted.
What "THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATION" says of
Harding's New Medieval and
"Professor Harding brings to his task an extensive knowledge of the field of European History in which he is a specialist, and better still, a discriminative sense of the importance of men and events as the 'accidents" of various historical phases. Best of all he attempts to give an impartial analysis of those movements which it is only too easy to consider from the standpoint of the partisan, of which the Reformation is a striking example. Professor Harding's chapters on that movement and on the religious wars which followed it are really noteworthy for their fair and dispassionate treatment. Another feature of the book is the attention paid to social, industrial and economic topics in their relation to history, which should help the pupil to realize that the men and women of other times were living, human creatures not unlike those with whom he comes into contact daily.
Lantern Slides and Stereographs
Austria, saw a wonderful blue flower growing in the grass. As he picked it a great door in the mountain side opened revealing a cavern filled with chests of gold, silver and jewels. You may believe the boy filled his pockets, but all the time a Voice kept saying "Don't forget the best." Finally he could carry no more. As he came out the door closed tight. Too late he remembered that he had left the key-flower inside. Without this key the door was forever closed. Since that day no one has ever been so lucky as to find another "KEY-FLOWER" until now, after many hundred years, a universal key is discovered, which daily unlocks the treasure doors of his own and foreign lands to every child. It is the FLOWER of all Picture Material, the KEYSTONE "600 SET."
Under the magic wand of the "Teachers' Guide" the 600 subjects of the set expand into 6000.
Every teacher may learn the secret by writing to Discoverers.
