This volume is apparently intended for use as an introductory manual in the study of politics, and to this purpose it is well adapted. The author follows the general lines of Bluntschli’s Lehre vom modernen Staat, which in its English dress, as The Theory of the State, has served a useful purpose for many years. Part i discusses the nature of the state; part ii the structure of government; and part iii the province of government. In each part the more important facts and theories are presented, with suggestive criticism and helpful interpretation. The material employed is skilfully arranged and balanced, while the style is concise and clear.
