The eighth edition of The Negro Year Book 1931-1932. (Tuskegee

Institute, 32) is a great improvement on its predecessors, and the name of its editor, Mr. Monroe N. Work, is sufficient to guarantee its accuracy and the value of its contents. The information which it contains will be of importance to all students of sociology, especially to those interested in the contact of cultures, and its practical value is enhanced by the fact that now for the first tune this annual encyclopaedia of the Negro is so arranged that its contents fall into convenient headings according to the subjects under review.
