Russian Projects against India. By H. Sutherland Edwards. (Remington.)—Mr. Sutherland

Edwards and other writers who have been warning us for we know not how many years past of Russian aggression, have certainly the best of it, while the jokes about "big maps," and " Mervousness," and so on, have lost something of their force. In this volume the writer, who has made himself thoroughly acquainted with his subject, discusses the designs which have been made by Russian statesmen and soldiers in this direction " from the Czar Peter to General Skobeleff." A very curious mass of informa- tion has been thus put together, and we commend it to those who have to make a study of the subject.
