The Oxford University Press is acting a patriotic part by

issuing a series of " Oxford Pamphlets," in which members of the University deal with subjects bearing on the great war. The first numbers include The Germans, by C. R. L. Fletcher, in two parts—(1) " Their Empire : How they have Made it" and (2) " What they Covet " (2d. net each); India and the War, by Sir Ernest J. Trevelyan; Just for a Scrap of Paper, by Arthur Hassall; Bacilli and Bullets, by Sir William Osler; Russia, by Paul Vinogradoff (Id. net each); The War and the British Dominions, by H. E. Egerton (2d. net). These pamphlets give much valuable information in clear and simple language, and should be widely disseminated.
