The Oxford University Press here makes available in forty-eight pages of large, widely spaced type an essay by Lord Moynihan. Admirers of the literary style and of the philosophy of Lord Moynihan—and who is not—may wish to have the essay in this handsome form and consider the dollar well spent. The essay is built about the contribution of Lord Lister as contrasted with that of political and military leaders of mankind. It leads to the conclusion that science has assumed responsibility for leadership in industry and that what is now needed is introduction of the scientific method into the government of affairs.
