Following a brief foreword and introduction the reader will find presentations on the problems of crime and punishment, the relation of war and medicine, individual and collective aggressiveness, behavior influences of babies, and the effect of society and war on each other. Also included is an address by Sir Norman Angell on plans for peace. While much of these offerings are interesting they tend to be mostly psychologic and philosophic considerations and in this sense are closely related to human behavior. Perhaps such material may not be interesting to all readers, but the present lectures fill a useful place in the series of lectures for the public which has become so well known in New York.
