clination for special study, we can bear sincere and grateful testimoay."

CongregcUionalist :

" Professor Giddings has prepared a text-book elementary in character
and untechnical though scientific in plan. It has been especially pre-
pared for the use of colleges and schools, and is clear, comprehensive,
and scholarly. It follows the development of society intelligently and
impressively from the beginnings to its present stage, and interprets the
significance of history, pointing out the conditions which are to be
sought if the future is to be. what it should be. It deserves hearty
favor."

TAe Churchtnan :

" Professor Giddings impresses the reader equally by his indepen-
dence of judgment and by his thorough mastery of every subject that
comes into his view.''

THE PRINCIPLES OF SOCIOLOGY.

AN ANALYSIS OF THE PHENOMENA OF ASSOCIATION AND OF
SOCIAL ORGANIZATION.

By FRANKLIN HENRY GIDDINQS, M.A.,

Professor of Sociology in Columbia University, in the City of New York*
(COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY PRESS.)

8vo. Cloth. $3.00, net.



" The book is especially valuable because of the clearness .and fulness with
which it discusses the psychical elements in social evolution.

" Professor Giddings has done good service by his clear exposition of the
present stage of sociology, and he has made a distinct and valuable contribution
to the subject. The book is also timely, and will doubtless have wide reading
and command the attention of all students of the subject, not only because of
Professor Giddings' acknowledged standing as a sociologist, but because of its
intrinsic value. The style is particularly lucidi and the tone of the book is judi-
cial throughout." — The Bookman.

" This is a book which has long been awaited with eager expectation by
students of sociology. We have a valuable treatise which will, we believe, for
many years to come be the text-book on this subject.

" Professor Giddings' work has in a high degree that most valuable character-
istic of a contribution to human thought, suggestiveness. His discussion of the
evolution of culture and tradition in his chapter on ' Demogenic Association '
is especially rich in suggestion.

" Professor Giddings' book is highly stimulating. He is a vigorous thinker
and a strong writer, and he has a broad knowledge of his subject and its various
affiliations which is as refreshing as it is unusual in this day of scientific special-
ists and non-scientific sociologists.

*' The book is well indexed and is accompanied by a valuable classified
bibliography, — valuable, but by no means exhaustive." — TAe New Unity.

'* Is of great interest. Students of the comparatively new science of soci-
ology will give a hearty welcome to Professor Giddings' book." — Boston Daily
Advertiser*

" His volume is a brilliant, fascinating, and important contribution to a sub-
ject which is engaging the sustained labors of our foremost scholars, and the
attention and interest of our publicists." — The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.

"The work is on an entirely new basis. There is nothing like it in litera-
ture. A glance at the table of contents will convince any one that it is a model
of method. We feel convinced that as soon as it becomes known it will be
accepted as an authority; and its value, coming in all its completeness at this
early stage of the study of this science, cannot be exaggerated." — Minneapolis
Tribune.

Professor of Administrative Law in Columbia College, Author qf
*' Comparative Administrative Law"

i2mo. Cloth. $1.50.



"The questions are handled with scholarly skill, and, it is needless
to say, without a scintilla of partisanship. A fair, candid, historic treat-
ment of a difficult problem is what we get, and when you lay the little
volume down you feel like offering your hand to the professor on the
thoroughly impartial and dispassionate manner in which he has done
his work. We very seldom give unstinted praise, but in the present
instance we indulge in that privilege because the professor has earned
the right to it." — A''. Y. Herald.

"Here is without doubt one of the most trenchant and scholarly
contributions to political science, remarkable for analytical power and
lucidity of statement. It cannot fail to do much for the cause it would
serve." — Chicago Mvening Post,

"To a correct understanding of the problem of municipal reform in
all its bearings. Professor Goodnow's work is really indispensable, and
it should be very carefully studied." — Boston Daily Advertiser.

" We question if any other book before has achieved quite the impor-
tant service to what may be termed theoretic municipahsm. . . . One
that all those interested in municipal matters should read. . . . Moderate
in tone, sound in argument, and impartial in its conclusions, it is a work
that deserves to carry weight." — London Liberal.

" Here is without doubt one of the most trenchant and scholarly con-
tributions to political science of recent writing, remarkable for analyti-
cal power and lucidity of statement. " — Chicago Evening Post.
