The Rights of Women. By H. Ostrogorski. (Swan Sonnenschein and

Co.)—This is a very complete résumé of the whole case. The right of succession to the Throne, the possession of the suffrage, " collective sovereignty," as it is styled, local self-government, the discharge of public office, the liberty of occupation, are treated of successively in relation to the status of women. The author is not an advocate, but a careful and well-informed writer who states facts in a philosophical order, and draws conclusions.
