This section of the Standard Catalog contains about one thousand titles 
of the most representative and useful books on social, economic and educational 
questions, arranged under the class numbers of the Dewey decimal classifica- 
tion, with descriptive and evaluative notes. Author and subject indexes are 
appended. This Catalog, covering the Sociology (300) division of the Dewey 
classification, will later form part of a dictionary catalog of 5,000 of the best 
books for adults on all subjects that should be represented in a public library 
of that size. As now printed, it includes more volumes than will be listed in 
the final Catalog. This section is issued in advance of the full Catalog in 
response to requests frotn public libraries and library commissions, because 
of the need of an up-to-date list of books on sociology and economics, because 
it seemed wise to print a test section in the hope of getting valuable criticism 
before issuing the full Catalog, and because the publishers wish to find out 
whether there is a demand for a classed catalog, printed in sections, in addition to 
the full dictionary catalog. 

The Standard Catalog is the third in the Standard Catalog Series, already 
including the Children's Catalog, issued in three sizes, with its 1918 Supple- 
ment, and the Fiction Catalog. It is the intention of the publishers to issue com- 
plete Standard Catalogs in dictionary form in sizes varying from 1,000 to 10,000 
titles, including adult fiction, and to revise them every year or two. 

Method of compilation. Questionnaires were sent out to a number of libra- 
rians, before beginning the work, dealing with its scope, form, and the data 
to be included. With these suggestions to guide her, in addition to her own 
experience in public libraries, large and small, and in one state library, the 
compiler formed her plan of work. No attempt was made to go over in de- 
tail the ground so carefully covered by the American Library Association up to 
1912, altho some books published prior to 1912 and not included in the A. L. A. 
Catalog and Supplement have been listed at the suggestion of collaborators. The 
chief sources used for the older books were the A. L. A. Catalog of 1904 and 
its Supplement (1904-1911) and the Classified Catalog of the Carnegie Library 
of Pittsburgh. Beginning with 1912, the compiler checked such titles as might 
be included in a librarj' of 10,000 volumes, in the bulletins of the Carnegie 
Library of Pittsburgh, the Cleveland Public Library, the Pratt Institute 
Library, the St. Louis Public Library, and the New York Branch Library 
News. These were clipped and mounted on cards, together with material 
from a number of other sources, including lists in bulletins of library commis- 
sions, notably that of Wisconsin, the New York Best Books, the Booklist, the 
Russell Sage Foundation Bulletin, etc. The file of book reviews accumulated 
by the Book Review Digest was constantly used. In this way a tentative list 
of some 1,300 titles was made and the galley proofs were sent to a few libra- 
rians and to a few specialists along economic, educational and sociological 
lines, for criticism and suggestion. 

Acknowledgments. Among the many librarians who gave helpful advice 
special thanks are due to Mr. John Boynton Kaiser and Miss Mary E. Lytle of the 
Tacoma (Wash.) Public Library, Miss Louise Hinsdale of the East Orange (N. 
J.) Public Library, Miss Mary L. Jones of the Los Angeles County Free Library, 
Miss Lucy E. Fay of the Library of the University of Tennessee, and Mr. John 
Cotton Dana of the Newark (N. J.) Free Public Library. The compiler also 
acknowledges her indebtedness to Miss Phelps of the Education section of the 
New. York State Library, who checked up the books on Education from the 
standpoint of their practical use, and to the library of the Russell Sage Founda- 
tion, which offered suggestions of much value. Generous help was also given by 
the following men and women, in order to perfect the selection along the lines of 

their special subjects: in Education, Professor Paul :\Ionroe, of Columbia Uni- 
versity ; in Insurance, Mr. Herbert B. Dow of the New England Mutual Life In- 
surance Company ; in Socialism, Mr. Harry W. Laidler of the Intercollegiate So- 
cialist Society, and Mr. Leon M. Solis-Cohen; on the Negro, Miss Mary White- 
Ovington, of the National Association for the Improvement of Colored People ; 
in various branches of economic, political and social science, Professor H. P. 
Fairchild, recently of Yale Universit^', Professor J. A. Fairlie, of the University 
of Illinois, Dr. C. C. Williamson, of the Committee on Study of Methods of Ameri- 
canization, and Dr. Charles A. Beard, Director of the Bureau of Municipal Re- 
search, New York City. 

The final decision as to the inclusion or exclusion of any title has necessarily 
been made by the editor in accordance with the weight of evidence. Inasmuch 
as the selection has been made in this manner, the cooperators should not be held 
individually responsible for the result. 

Data given. The attempt has been made to enter authors under the more 
familiar forms of their names. For instance, Norman Angell is listed as Angell, 
the surname used on the title pages of his books, instead of under Lane. Pretty 
full titles have been given, followed by number of volumes when more than one, 
edition, illustrations (when important), maps, date (latest copyright date being 
given when easily ascertainable), publisher and price. The prices have been taken 
in the main from the Publisher's Trade List Annual of 1917, tho a few prices are ■ 
of more recent date. Series notes have been given when important. Only two 
or three out-of-print books have knowingly been listed and these are plainly 
marked. Almost every title is annotated. A large number of these notes have 
been taken from library bulletins, the Booklist, the Book Review Digest, and other 
of the sources used in selection. ]\Ir. G. B. Utley has kindly permitted the use 
of a number of notes from the A. L. A. Catalog and Supplement. Class numbers 
have been given after each entry, because the same linotype slugs will be used 
later in the dictionary catalog. A few books not classifying in the 300s have been 
included because of their close connection with the subjects covered. Inter- 
national relations, 341.6, is followed by 172.4, the ethical side of war and peace. 
Education includes 650, Commercial education, and 174, A^ocational guidance. 

Selection. The selection has been made more especiall)' for the smaller 
libraries, but with both the small and laVge library in mind, some titles being 
listed here that will probabl}' be dropped from the 5,000 volume dictionary 
catalog. Scholarly and expensive books have sometimes been included in a 
note at the head of a section. Biographies which are of interest in connection 
with a given section have been occasionally so noted as well. Some valuable 
books have been omitted because they are not ordinarily called for in a 
library of from 5,000 to 10,000 volumes. ]Many books of value two years ago 
have been omitted because the great changes due to the world war have either 
greatly lessened or destroyed their value. A few critical librarians will 
perhaps note the omission of some "books that no gentleman's library should 
be without." Others will note the inclusion of titles in their opinion too ex- 
pensive or too "highbrow" for the smaller libraries. The compiler has tried 
to list not the ideally best books without regard to expense, availability or 
limitation of interest to a few scholars, but the best books that the average 
intelligent frequenter of our public libraries will actually read or study. In 
so doing she has assumed that the general level of intelligence is rising and 
that a greater number of people than before the war, including our new women 
voters, are interested in serious subjects. Few pamphlets, bibliographies, gov- 
ernment documents or expensive reference books have been included in these 
advance sheets. Practically no juveniles except a few books of fairy tales'and 
folklore, equally interesting to adults, have been included. 

Uses. It is hoped that this Standard Catalog will be of use to libra 
nans as a buying list, in reference work, and as a recommended list of the 
best reading for users of our public libraries ; also that it will meet the demand 
of the reader for a printed catalog that he may take home.

male, following the principles of force; this is 
wrong. It will and must in future be ruled 
by the emotion of the ideal, which is right. 
Since women possess this emotion in a higher 
degree than men, and are predomiijantly moved 
by the long-range emotions, it is to women that 
Power will belong in the new age just opening 
out. The whole trend of civilization can be 
changed in a single generation, by a dominant

"Folkways the author defines as 'ways of 
doing things' which are gradually recognized 
as expedient and develop into established cus- 
toms. Their origins are lost in mystery, but 
they are always and everywhere a controlling 
social force, regulating in every detail the life 
of uncivilized races and hardly less potent in 
the life of civilized peoples. With great labor 
Professor Sumner has assembled a mass of 
materials, gathered from almost all accessible 
sources, and with rare insight and scientific cau- 
tion has sought to elicit their meaning. The 
result is an important contribution to the sci- 
entific study of society. (Condensed from Na-

" 'Mr. Trotter argues that gregariousness is

that there are times in the life of a _ people, 
especially if war exists, when gregariousness 
masters or at least distorts every other impulse. 
In 1908 and 1909 Mr. Trotter published his 
articles in the Sociological review. There are 
now reprinted and immensely enriched bv con-

the comparative method, contrasting American 
conditions with those elsewhere. Appendix con-

"Three lectures: Nationalism in the West; Na-

is an ingenuous denunciation of nationalism, par- 
ticularly British nationalism as seen in British 
domination of India. The author's definition of 
a nation is an organized power which keeps up 
its insistence that the population become strong 
and efficient. But this strenuous effort after 
strength diverts man's power of sacrifice from 
his ultimate object, which is moral, to the 
maintenance of the nation, which is mechani-

spreading. Lynching is no longer an exclu-

only helpless victim. *The nation must destroy

Powles. authorized ed *14 Longmans 
50c 327 

" *Candid expression of the German purpose 
to predominate. . . , General Bernhardi does 
not merely produce a book in praise of war; 
he deliberately advocates not only preparation 
for war. but also war itself. He writes from 
the standpoint of one who thinks that aspira- 
tions for peace threaten to poison the soil 

upon which the German people live.' " (Re- 
view of reviews, 19 14-) Pittsburgh

economics, which strikes a different note from 
Bernhardi' and Treitschke, is Rohrbach's Ger-

Scribner $1.25 327 

"M. Chfiradame had studied German policy 
for 22 years before writing this book and 
had frequently warned Europe of the German 
danger. He writes to demonstrate that 'the 
Pangerman plot is the only cause of the war' 
and to show that the acceptance of a peace 
offered by Germany on the principle of th« 
'drawn game' would merely be an aid to her in 
renewing her plans for Pangermanism in the 
near future." Pittsburgh

A series of lectures delivered by the late

'Weltpolitik' and makes an impassioned plea 
to England for preparedness for inevitable 
war." Cleveland

Schmitt, Bemadotte Everly

'16 Princeton univ. $2 327 

"An historical review of the development of 
the German Empire and the conflict of com- 
mercial, naval, and imperialistic aims and poli- 
cies which strained Anglo-German diplomatic re- 
lations, notably since 1870, and prepared the 
ground for the present war. As Rhodes scholar 
at Oxford, Dr. Schmitt became interested in 
diplomatic history of this period, and the ma- 
terial for the study was largely gathered and 
the book partly written before the outbreak of 
the war; the various 'books' of diplomatic dis- 
patches of the belligerent governments, and a 
limited account of other war material have also 
been considered. . . The candor and excel- 
lent temper of the work and its vivid concrete 
style, constitute it a permanent contribution to 
the literature of the war rather than a propa- 
gandist document. Dr. Schmit is assistant pro- 
fessor of history at Western reserve university.

"No writer before Mill had ever surveyed 
political economy as a whole with anything like 
equal ability; no one had shown with the same 
fulness the relation which different parts of 
the science bore to each other; still less had 
any one so well explained the relation of this 
science to other sciences and to knowledge in 
general.* " ,(^agehot) A. L. A.

"A revision of 'Introduction to economics.' 
The chapter, 'Plans of economic reform,' of 
the former edition has been replaced by four 
new chapters: 'Reform of the tax system of 
the United States'; 'Profit sharing and labor

been rewritten, the explanations of the laws of 
value and distribution recast, and the whole 
revised to date." A. L. A. bkl. 

'*Prof. Seager is, we believe, typical of the

he regards economic theory as the connecting

work." Athenaeum 2:140.

in the policies and methods of unions. Hoxie's 
classification of unions for the first time brings 
out scientifically the great difference in unions, 
permits one to see the very complex character 
of the labor problems and warns against those 
sweeping generalizations that pretend to offer 
simple solutions. This leads the author to 
build up a truly constructive method of dealing 
with all labor problems according to the actual 
conditions.' " (J: R. Commons) Book rev. di-

"Mr. Franklin's book is above reproach as a

checks the tendency of the theorist to dog-

doubts the efficacy of legislative remedies for

rise in prices. (Condensed from Nation, 19 16) "

"This book calls attention to the nature and 
immensity of the problem of poverty and to its 
relation to new standards of living; it analyzes 
the causes of poverty and attempts some con- 
structive suggestions for solution. Interest on 
capital earned by the owners is sanctioned, but 
income from inheritance is denounced. Com- 
petitive profit is upheld, but profit due to the 
tariff, monopoly, and special privilege is in- 
dicted. Rent of land and unearned increment 
receive a special arraignment. A social program 
for the solution of the poverty problem must 
therefore include the abolition of these evils of 
distribution, as well as other generally recog- 
nized social reforms. Socialism as an indict- 
ment is valid, though it has failed in construc- 
tive suggestions," Jour. pol. econ. 21 1179

cure them respectively by (1) collective labor- 
bargaining and possible state-interference for the 
unskilled, (2) by labor-exchanges, unemploy- 
ment-insurance and residential decentralization, 
(3) by social insurance.

"Mr. Marburg, United States minister to 
Belgium under President Taft, and one of the 
originators of the League to enforce peace, dis- 
cusses the movement in America from a his- 
torical point of view. His book differs from 
'World peace' which gives detailed arguments on 
the platform of the league. He states that the 
purpose of the league is not to enforce peace 
but to encourage peace by deliberation."

Re-education; an analysis of the institu-

Houghton $1 362 

"A fearless analysis of the institutional sys- 
tem of the United States by a business man and 
for business men. The writer believes that there 
are some fundamental weaknesses or fallacies in 
our present system of dealing with education, 
sin, insanity, and disease. He bases objections 
to the existing institutional system on the failure 
to do more than prevent, during the period of 
incarceration, the act of which the prisoner or 
patient has been guilty. He would build up a 
system of re-education which would make pro- 
ducers of inmates of institutions with an in- 
crease of efficiency. The thought underlying 
the inquiry and arraignment emanates from the 
best social theory of the day." Book rev. digest

personal experience as a wage-earning boy of

for more than half a generation. He agrees 
with 'Convict 1776' that the prison as a reforma- 
tory is a failure, and is more radical, as well as 
much more practical, in his suggestions for re- 
form. 'This book is not the last work in pen-

part 2, Behind reformatory walls, appeared in 
part in Good housekeeping. The author, a mem- 
ber of the New York commission on prison re- 
form, following Thomas Mott Osborne's method 
of investigation, spent a week as an inmate of 
the New York state prison for women at Auburn, 
where she posed as an unknown first offender, 
up for forgery. She also visited many reforma- 
tories for boys, and talked with inmates of states 
prisons who were 'graduates' from reformatories. 
From these experiences, and letters and other 
first-hand documents, she draws her conclusion 
that the present penal methods are stupid, and 
useless for reform. A final chapter describes 
an English 'reformatory that reforms.* " Cleve-

"A clear and logical analysis of the nature 
of study, resolving it into eight principal factors 
and examining each in turn in relation to chil- 
dren. Fuller and of more general application 
than L. B. Earhart's 'Teaching children to 
study' (Riverside educational monographs,

Author is (1Q14) assistant professor of edu-

"He is fully acquainted with the history of 
pedagogical development and thoroly conversant 
with the psychlogical basis of educational theory. 
He has made a careful study of Dr. Montes- 
sori's theory, and of her practice at first hand; 
and attempts to show wherein these differ from 
those of the kindergarten, as well as from the 
pedagogical principles upheld by Professor John 
Dewey. He presents clearly and concisely the 
weakness and the strong points of both the new 
system and the old system of Froeiael as it has 
been developed by his disciples. He gives Dr. 
Montessori full credit for her scientific aims 
and for some of her practice, but he does not 
spare critical judgment -when it appears war- 
ranted. (Condensed from Nation, 1914)" Pitts-

Montessori method; tr. from the Italian

"Makes available in_ English this remarkable 
educational system which has been so success- 
fully applied by Dr. Montessori in Rome and 
is (19 12) being used experimentally in some 
American schools. The method here set forth 
is intended for children from three to six years 
of age. Its most striking and significant as- 
pects are that it adapts to the education of 
normal children methods and apparatus origi- 

nally used for deficients; that it is based on a 
radical conception of liberty for the pupil; that 
it entails a thoro training of separate sensory, 
motor and mental capacities; and that it leads 
to rapid and easy mastery of the elements of 
reading, writing and arithmetic." Pittsburgh

conduct ; and with his method he has also de- 
veloped in his pupils an unusual keenness in 
thinking straight thru a moral situation, and

on which great emphasis is laid, the Volksschule 
teaches a narrow type of nationalism which 
goes far to explain why the common people of 
Germany are lacking in initiative and inde-
