    BOOKS upon the subject of punishment are usually written by humanitarians, cranks, or persons with some sort of a doctrinal axe to grind—theological or psychological. Dr. Ewing, however, contributes a thoroughly well-thought-out and well-informed dissertation, which will be read with profit by magistrates, schoolmasters, and clergymen, as well as with sustained delight by philosophers and students of ethics.

    The Morality of Punishment: with some Suggestions for a General Theory of Ethics.

    By Dr. A. C. Ewing Pp. xiv + 233. (London: Kegan Paul and Co., Ltd., 1929.) 10s. 6d. net.
