This constitutes the third contribution of the great H. G. Wells to his account of modern knowledge. His previous works on the history of our civilization and on the science of life represent special studies from the point of view of history and of science of what man has learned. His present book deals primarily with economics. It is written with the literary technic for which the author is so well known. It shows a tremendous grasp of the available information. The book reveals, moreover, an analysis of trends of our civilization including our economic waste that is highly instructive when such a study is so much needed. The books are beautifully printed and handsomely illustrated and enlightening.
