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
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
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
