'The New Zealand Shipping and Commerce. Annua! Review ' is an exceptionally attractive journal, and supplies in arrestins; form interest in a; particulars of the progress of New Zealand industries and eommer< ial enterprises, which have made rapid growth during recent years. The. contents of the ' Review ' are varied, and comprise statistics of lite Dominion's exports and imports, and illustrated special articles on Otugo Harbor and Dunedin, the wool industry, the butter and cheese industry, hivercargill, and Waikato. The general illustrations are admirable in extent and character. The people of Otago will find special interest in the finelyiilustraUxl article in this year's issue on ' Otago Harbor and the Green-walled City.' The information in the letterpress should dispel much of the amazing misunderstanding elsewhere as to the condition ar.d facilities of the port of Dunedin. It is noted, for instance, that the depths at the entrance and in the channel as far as Deborah. Bay are, according to an official report, greater than the entrance depths of the other main ports of the Dominion. Special attention is paid to the. up-to-date equipment of the docks at Port Chalmers. The ' Review' as a whole is a highly-creditable production. ' The Round Table," special war number. The above has been prepared with the purpose of reviewing, as clearly and impartially as possible, the origins of the war and tiie'great issues raised by it. The scope of the firs), three articles is explained in the following headings:— ' The War in Europe."—Origins (1) in Austro-H.ungarian Polities; (2) in the Aims of Modem Germany—The : Fortnight— Ultimate Issues. 'Germany ami the Prussian Spirit.'--German Idealj ism—The Prussian Aristocracy —The Strong Wine of Victory—Bismarck's ; Legacy—Bureaucrat and Militarism — | The Religion of War.—l9l4. 'The Ayisi tro-Servian Dispute.'—The Assassination of the Archduke—The Crises of 1908 and 1812—The Race Issue —The Austro-Hun-garian Ultimatum. Then follows an article entitled ' Lombard Street in War,' by the author of the article ' Lombard Street and War.' which attracted great attention on its appearance in ' The Round Table' in March. 1912. There is also a careful summary of the diplomatic correspondence immediately preceding the war. as published in the British White Paper, and a reprint of Sir Edward Grey's speech in the House of Commons on August 3, the day before war was declared.

Mr Critchley Parker (' Australian Mining Standard"') has just published the famous ' White Book,' of which the London 'Times' says: "It is a book which every Englishman should not be content merely to read about, but should read and master lor himself, and put it into his library. It should, above all, be circulated as widely as possible throughout the Empire: and lor the instruction of our foes, as well as of our friends abroad, it should be at once translated into the principal foreign languages."
