    DR. BLACKTIN has written a book which is a mixture of philosophy and fact. In modern days this is unusual in a scientific text-book, and initially makes rather interesting reading. The scientific reader in search of a lucid exposition of dusts and smokes, however, will find it rather difficult to differentiate between the facts and Dr. Blacktin's own philosophy. The author has considered every conceivable aspect of smokes and dusts, even explaining how they help in the scientific detection of crime. (Under the heading of dusts he includes such widely diverse systems as sandstorms, volcanic eruptions and ice particles.)


    By Dr. S. Cyril Blacktin. Pp. xi + 296 + 2 plates. (London: Chapman and Hall, Ltd., 1934.) 18s. net.
