Iron Ore in Europe1


THE political redistribution of the iron ores and coal supplies of Central Europe by the late war was one of the results of most portentous import to the future of the world. A clear summary of the available evidence by a well-qualified expert who represents so impartial an authority as the Geological Survey of the United States, is a valuable addition to the literature of political geology. The evidence on which the memoir is based is of very unequal value, for any individual synopsis of the iron ore position must be based on the published records, which are of varying quality in different countries; moreover, the author remarks that the Russian and Slavonic literature is available to him only at second hand.
