A Little Book about Great Britain. By Azamat-Batak. (Bradbury and

Evans.)—Every one will have read or heard of the " Turk " who, under this name, gave us in the Pall Mall Gazette the benefit of some of his ideas about our manners and customs and ways of thinking. His letters are reprinted in this volume "with considerable additions," and make a book certainly not agreeable to read, but unquestionably, for all that, worth reading. Who " Azamat-Batuk " may be we cannot pretend to conjecture ; we dare not even hazard a guess at his nationality. It is certainly a remarkable piece of good fortune that the Pall Mallshould have found in Islam so like-minded an expositor of its own characteristic views of social and moral questions.
