    WITHIN reasonable compass this well-arranged volume gives a great deal of information about present conditions in Russian territories in Europe and Asia. The extensive bibliography of Russian works indicates that the facts arid figures have been taken from the most recent official sources. No other than Russian publications find a place in the list. The agriculture, mineral resources, and trade of the Soviet Union are treated in great detail. The regulations for foreign trade are given, and particular attention is paid to the trade with Great Britain. Another section explains the policy and gives the regulations for concessions and the attraction of foreign capital to Russia. Many pages are devoted to the political organisation and the constitution of the Soviet Union, the regulations for labour, the organisation of finances, and the principal clauses of the civil code. In fact, the volume is an authoritative treatise on the country and as such is of considerable interest. It is mainly a statement of fact, and very few expressions of opinions have crept in. There are two coloured and two black-and-white maps. The present volume is the third annual issue.
