In Connection with the Legislation and other circumstances affecting the
Condition of the People. By Sir GEORGE NICHOLLS, K.C.B., Poor Law
Commissioner and Secretary to the Poor Law Board. New Revised
Edition, with a Biography and Portrait of the Author. 2 Vols., 308.

. “This new edition of Nicholls' History of the English Poor Law' will be thoroughly appreciated by a larg circle of readers, including students of several of the social sciences. The present edition is moreover a line piece of bookmaking, and, with the third volume, which brings the history down to date, will constitute a work indispensable to those interested in the social history of the century. Not only legislation strictly applying to the poor is considered, but much social legislation of a related character. The work as a whole is valuable to students because it is a complete account, within well defined limits, of one of the largest and most important series of experiments in social legislation of which there is any record. There are few works of a general character to compare with Nicholls", and there are none that give a more concrete and faithful record of events with constant reference to contemporaneous and official records."- Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. POOR LAW CONFERENCES, 1898-99. Annual Volume of the

Proceedings of the Central and District Poor Law Conferences, held from April, 1898, to February, 1899, with the Papers read and Discussion thereon, and Report of Central Committee. Portrait. Demy 8vo, cloth,

"Carlyle, in his usual epigrammatic style, once said : You will have some people wrong on everything, and all the people wrong on something, but you will not get all the people wrong on everything, and this booklet is a good illustration of the situation. Mr. Davies certainly makes ont a plausible case for prohibiting the develorment of inunicipal trading when he points to the enormous local indebtedness of the country. The paper is in some respects a strong indictment of municipal mismanagement, and it is well worth careful study." -Local Government Chronicle. HOW THE ENGLISH WORKMAN LIVES.
