The Growth of British Policy. By Sir J. R. Seeley.

(Cam- bridge University Press. 17s. 6d. net.)—Seeley's last book, published after his death in 1895, has now been reprinted in a single volume, with the memoir by Professor Prothero. The appearance of the reprint is a pleasant proof of Seeley's abiding popularity. • The book, it will be remembered, deals with the development of our national policy from the days of Elizabeth to the reign of William the Third. It is a most stimulating review of a great period in our history, considered in relation to Europe and the New World.
