Book Reviews

This is a book that every lawyer should read and every law student should be required to read. It is the culminating work of a masterly mind that for over fifty years has been studying governments, ancient and modern,’ and meantime the writer has had the practical advantage of holding high and responsible offices, including that of British Ambassador to the United States. Viscount Bryce speaks plainly of American national, state and municipal shortcomings in government, especially the last, but it is done in a kindly vein. He is a friend of America and gives us credit for much.
