Dr. Iladen Guest has compiled an authoritative work on The New Russia (Butterworth. -10s. 6d.); which merits a longer notice than can be given here. From . the shadow of the Great Wall of China Mr. Putnam Weale "writes topically and in his usual easy style of the problems of -the Pacific. (Why China Sees Red. Macmillan. -12s.) Excellent illus- trations and a clear :narrative of - the - recent events' in Peking, which have thine so much to shape hist:4y, make this a book that no one interested in the Far East should miss.
