    Abstract

    IF geography could be learnt satisfactorily by reading alone it would be difficult to find a more suitable and attractive reading book than this. The Mediterranean Sea and Europe are described by the aid of interesting text and numerous maps and pictures. Historical paragraphs emphasising the interrelation of history and geography are frequent, and the pupil who reads the volume intelligently will have accumulated a great deal of curious and useful information. But for the right understanding of geography as a science this descriptive matter must be supplemented by carefully graduated practical exercises, judiciously designed to lead the learner to a knowledge of the foundations upon which geographical science rests.

    By H. J. Mackinder. Pp. xii + 276. (London: George Philip and Son, Ltd., 1908.) Price 1s. 9d.
