English Associations of Working Men. By J. M. Baernreither. Translated

by Alice Taylor. (Swan Sonnenschein.)—The original of this book was reviewed in the Spectator of May 21st, 1887. We welcome it in its English form, commended as it is to the public by so competent an authority as Mr. J. M. Ludlow. It is only necessary to repeat that this is a most able and exhaustive work, unless we add that the testimony which our German critic bears to the condition of our working men, and to the general relation of classes in this country, is most gratifying.
