Dictionary of Indian Biography. By C. E. Buckland. (Swan Sonnenschein

and Co. '7s. 61)-This is a carefully compiled summary of • facts and dates relating to British administrators and soldiers who have served in India, statesmen who have had to do with Indian affairs, and natives who have achieved dis- -tinction. The notices are neutral in tone, and the volume seems in every way well calculated to serve as a book of reference.
