Samuel Pepys and the Minxes
Jn this third volume of the Diary the experiences of "Samuel Pepys
^JJistener" and "Samuel Pepjs Looks at Life" are brought up to date.
A.S its title indicates., Samuel is much invoked with the ladiesy but he
chatters and reflects on a multitude of subjects and rarely fails to be
entertaining on any of them. He is a lovable, human character with
a good many defects and a few virtues^ a keen taster of life in all its mani-
festations and a shrewd observer of human nature ; with an eye for a
silk-stockinged leg and an ear for a good story. This Diary is an ideal
book for a week-end or for a spare quarter of an hour, it can be dipped into
anywhere with the certainty of finding something to divert one on every
page. Cr. %vo. zo Illustrations* js. 6d.

Germany—Hammer or Anvil ?
Foreword by COLONEL THE RT. HON. JOHN GRETTON, P.C., C.B.E., M.P.
Beginning with a brief account of pre-War German policy the author
shows that at a time when Germany was an "equal" she behaved in the
same restless., explosive manner. A. detailed analysis is made of Herr
Hitler's broken pledges and real aims. The conclusion that she is seeking
not justice, but domination., is reached and the author shows how these
aims should be combated. This sensible and clearly expressed book
provides a most interesting and important addition to the existing
literature on the question. A Hutchinson "Pocket" Special. 6d.
