"The Principles of Relief, by Edward T, Devine, is by far the most original and valu-
able book in its general field which has appeared since the publication of 'American Charities'
by the late Amos G. Warner, ten years ago. The volume may be said to be a re-statement of
the entire subject of relief work, all the various forms of relief being grouped around the cen-
tral theme of the book— the standard of living. Dr. Devine has a most hospitable mind, and,
although his immediate work has been more directly in connection with the relief of families
in their homes, this subject is not given undue prominence in the volume. All phases of relief
are considered and in regard to each Dr. Devine lays aside traditional phraseology and has
something interesting and original to say. Dr. Devine has pronounced opinions on all matters
pertaining to charity and has well earned the right to have them. From some of his views we
are obliged to register unqualified dissent, particularly, in the writer's case, as to certain of his
opinions in regard to institutional and placing-out methods in the care of children. While the
writer dissents from some of Dr. Devine's opinions, he, nevertheless, would strongly urge all
workers in the child-saving field, as in all the other lines of charity, to read Dr. Devine's book,
feeling confident that each of them will receive, as the writer has done, stimulus, encourage-
ment and inspiration in so doing." — Homer Folks, Secretary State Charities Aid Association,
Ex-Commissioner of Public Charities, New York City.

The book is a study of the ten million persons in this country who are estimated by the
writer to be in poverty; that is, underfed, underclothed and poorly housed. It is the first effort
that has been made to determine the general prevalence of distress and to compare our condi-
tions with those of European countries. It deals with certain forces that have come under the
writer's own observation, which are causing the poorest of the working classes to degenerate
into the wastrel and dependent classes. The writer has lived for several years in the industrial
communities and foreign colonies of the largest cities in this country and in England, and is
therefore able to describe at first hand the misery and wretchedness of those in poverty. The
chapters on the working child, the street child, and the vagrant, touch upon some of the most
vital problems of our national life, while the chapter on the sick deals with some of the most
pathetic phases of tenement house life. The portion of the book treating of poverty in general
is a careful survey of conditions and of certain causes which are fast producing in this new
country a widespread misery which will soon rival that of Europe.

The Care of Destitute, Neglected,
and Delinquent Children

By Homer Folks, Commissioner of Public
Charities of the City of Neiu York.
Cloth. l6mo. $1 .00 net.

''Among our expert? none stands higher than the
cultivated author, and in this work he writes out of
the memories and studies of a fruitful life, and gives
to the public wise and reliable counsel."

—Prof. Charles R. Henderson,

in The Tale 'lieview.

Constructive and Preventive

By Joseph Lee, Vice-President of the
Massachusetts Civic League. With
an Introduction by Jacob A. "B^iis.
Cloth. i6mo. $1.00 net.

" Mr. Lee has brought together in a small com-
pass, and in extremely lucid form, a vast body of
facts which speali for themselves, and his standpoint
is that of modern progressive pedagogy, which
recognizes that institutions must fit children and
youth instead of forcing the latter to fit institutions."
— G. Stanley Hall.

The Development of Thrift

By Mary Willcox Broivn, General Sec-
retary of the Henry tVatson Children's
Aid Society, Baltimore. Cloth. i2mo.

"a very strong argument for organized charity
. . . treated, and well treated, by one who has had
experience and brings to her subject a mind in-
spired by intelligent research and scientific study."
— Catholic Mirror.

Friendly Visiting Among the Poor

A Handbook for Charity Workers. By
Mary E. Richmond, General Secre-
tary of the Charity Organization Soci-
ety of Baltimore. Cloth. l6mo. $1.00.

"a small book, full of inspiration, yet intensely
practical, was needed for the growing company of
workers who mediate between dependent families
and the comfortable public. Miss Richmond has
brought together, from careful reading and success-
ful personal experience, a body of instruction of the
highest value."

— Prof. Charles R. Henderson,

in American Journal of Sociology.

The Principles of

An Analysis of Phenomena of Association
and of Social Organization . By Frank-
lin Henry Giddings, M.A., Professor
of Sociology in Columbia Uni'versity.
Cloth. 8'vo. S3. 00 net.

It is a treatise which will confirm the highest
expectations of those who have expected much from
this alert observer and virile thinker. Beyond a
reasonable doubt, the volume is the ablest and most
thoroughly satisfactory treatise on the subject in the
English language."— iircrary World.

The distinctive merit of the work is that it is
neither economics nor history . . . He has found a
new field and devoted his energies to its explora-
tion. . . . The chapters on Social Population and on
Social Constitution are among the best in the book.
It is here that the method of Professor Giddings
shows itself to the best advantage. The problems of
anthropology and ethnology are also fully and ably
handled. Of the other parts I like best of all the
discussion of tradition and of social choices: on
these topics he shows the greatest originality. I
have not the space to take up these or other doc-
trines in detail, nor would such work be of much
value. A useful book must be read to be under-
stood."— PROF. Simon N. Patten, in Science.

The Elements of

A Text-book for Colleges and Schools.
By Franklin Henry Giddings, M.A.,
Professor of Sociology in Columbia
Uni'versity. Cloth. 8'vo. $1 .10 net.

"it is thoroughly intelligent, independent, sug-
gestive, and manifests an unafJected enthusiasm for
social progress, and on the whole a just and sober
apprehension of the conditions and essential fea-
tures of such progress."

—Prof. H. Sidgwick,

in The Economic Journal.

" Of its extreme interest, its suggestiveness, its
helpfulness to readers to whom social questions are
important, but who have not time or inclination for
special study, we can bear sincere and grateful
testimony," — New York Times.

" Professor Giddings impresses the reader equally
by his independence of judgment andbyhist ho rough
mastery of every subject that comes into his view."
— The Churchman.
