    YEAR-BoOK ON COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION IN

    THE UNITED STATES. American Arbitra

    tion Association. Pp. 1142 and index.

    Oxford University Press, American

    Branch, 1927. Price, $7.50.

    Arbitration in the settlement of commer

    cial disputes has much to teach those who

    seek for arbitration between nations. The

    former has already risen from dream to

    reality, and it is now true that the Ameri

    can business public is overwhelmingly in

    favor of such methods of settlement for com

    mercial disputes. This year-book is the first of its kind in

    the United States. It tells how arbitration can be secured in various trades, what it

    will be likely to cost, and explains the rules

    laid down to govern the decision. The chap ters on the International Chamber of Com

    merce, the Chamber of Commerce of the

    United States, and the local chambers of commerce reveal the long steps already taken toward the reign of justice in economic

    relationships.

    WE AND THE WORLD. By William C. Red

    field. Pp. 194 and index. Silver Burdett and Co.

    Mr. Redfleld, Secretary of Commerce, 1915-1919, has here written a small supple

    mentary reader in geography for the use of

    schools. It is attractively printed and pro

    fusely Illustrated with half-tones of photo graphs. The book presents, in an interest

    ing way, many surprising details of our

    commercial and industrial relations with other parts of the world. The chapters treat of the sources of all sorts of domestic articles known to children, from the family shoes and buttons, to shellac, camphor and

    foodstuffs.

    Such a book ought, as the author hopes it will, help children to appreciate other countries and our mutual dependence, thus

    contributing somewhat to the ultimate peace of the world.

    LORD BYRON's HELMET. By Maud Howe Elliott. Pp. 110. Houghton, Mifflin Co.,

    Boston, 1927. Price, $1.50.

    This Is an odd little book. It contains a

    bit about the connection of Lord Byron with the Greek War of Independence of 1821-30,

    especially of his death, in 1824. More about

    Surgeon Samuel Gridley Howe and his later

    enthusiastic labors for Greek liberty. The

    greater portion of the book, however, is a

    narrative of the expedition to Greece, in

    1926, of Dr. Howe's daughter, Maud Howe

    Elliott, and her presentation to that country of the helmet which Byron had had made for himself and which Dr. Howe later bought. The helmet had, for a generation and more, been kept in the Howe's home in America, a memento of the cause to which both Byron and Dr. Howe had consecrated their efforts

    many years ago. The intimate little diary and descriptions

    of persons and places in Greece, which Mrs. Elliott kept during her trip, lends particular interest to the book. The story of the helmet itself makes an unusual story thread, link

    ing together the Greece of the 1820's and of the 1920's. That country becomes very real before the reader lays down the volume.

    INTERNATIONAL Civics. By Pitman B. Potter and Roscoe L. West. Pp. 307 and index.

    Macmillan Co., New York, 1927.

    This attractive, illustrated text-book is ex

    cellent in plan and scope. There is an evi

    dent desire to keep its statements unpartisan, in spite of the fact that the authors are

    strong backers of the League of Nations, to which they allot a large amount of space. There is no treatment at all of the many
