THE Faraday Society is to be congratulated on the issue of this volume, reprinted from its Transactions; soil investigators in this country now have, in accessible form, a study of one important branch of work from a number of aspects. The volume contains the subject-matter of the general discussion held by the Faraday Society in 1921 on “Physico-Chemical Problems relating to the Soil.” There are sixteen papers grouped in the following five sections: (1) Introduction and General Papers, (2) Soil Moisture, (3) Organic Constituents of the Soil, (4) Adsorption Phenomena, and (5) Colloidal Phenomena. The student of soils will find much of interest, not only in the papers themselves but also in the verbatim report of the discussion which followed.
