ATLANTIC BOOKS

NOW READY-A NEW VOLUME

FOR NATION-WIDE DISTRIBUTION

PAN-GERMANY: THE DISEASE AND CURE

By ANDRÉ CHÉRADAME

All the Atlantic Monthly articles by André Chéradame a series recognized throughout the country as carrying the weight of peculiar authority, and in our opinion the most important so far published on the war — have been reprinted in a single volume.

To insure the widest distribution, this book, alone of the Atlantic publications, is enclosed in paper covers and retails at the nominal price of 25 cents. It is of immediate and vital importance to us as a nation and to every American citizen.

Do you, as an American, realize that at this moment Germany has won the war? She is in possession of most of what she hoped for, and of far more than she expected. Peace to-day means almost endless wars ahead, or else the universal destruction of democracy and freedom as we know them.

Read Chéradame's Pan-Germany. Ponder it. Pass it along to thinking people. By so doing, you will render a patriotic service.

To patriotic societies and other agencies which wish to distribute this book in large quantities, we can offer the following prices :

ESSAYS AND ESSAY WRITING

FROM ATLANTIC MONTHLY MODELS

Edited with Introduction and Notes

BY

W. M. TANNER

OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

This book, published in response to the great success of Atlantic Classics, is intended to meet other needs of the modern teaching of English. More of the textbook than the Classics, it provides student and teacher with a great variety of stimulating suggestions, and is edited specifically to encourage attainment in literary composition, as well as in appreciation of good literature.

The book is a collection of sixty-nine short familiar essays selected from the Contributors' Club of The Atlantic Monthly for use in advanced high school work, as well as in college English. The selections, of about one thousand words each, are classified under five types of the familiar essay, each type-group preceded by a concise statement of its distinguishing characteristics. An introductory section, suggestions for study, specific questions on the essay, a few brief notes, and a list of 250 suggestive titles for original essays, render the volume unusually valuable as a textbook.

Through great variety in subject-matter and originality in the treatment of each subject, the book is designed to arouse in the student genuine interest I the study of the familiar essay, and to stimulate him to express his own personality in compositions of this type. In length and in general character the essays included are within the range of the average student's capacity for appreciation and constructive effort.

It is the aim of Essays and Essay Writing to encourage the student in discovering his own ideas and in expressing his thought in as clear, personal, fresh, and vigorous style as he can develop. An attempt is made to assist both student and teacher to escape from the trite, impersonal composition, or "weekly theme." Originality, clearness, simplicity, ease, and naturalness of expression are qualities emphasized throughout the book.

ATLANTIC CLASSICS

SECOND SERIES

Owing to the great success of Atlantic Classics, we have prepared a second volume, containing eighteen essays, all of which have been received with enduring pleasure on their original publication in The Atlantic Monthly.

None of the eighteen authors of this new group contributed to the earlier collection. Though quite as characteristic of The Atlantic itself, the collection is thus absolutely distinct from the first volume and enters new fields of interest.

We recommend it to the attention of teachers as well as to the general reader. To the pupil it offers exhilarating possibilities. The table of contents includes:

BOOKS WORTH KEEPING

Some of the best things that The Atlantic Monthly has ever printed are now being put into permanent book form. To this series of handsome reprints we have given the name ATLANTIC PAPERS. The first three volumes form a standard and a promise of others that are to come.

HEADQUARTERS NIGHTS

By VERNON KELLOGG

This book not only contains Professor Kellogg's famous analysis of German offical character, an analysis based on long residence as envoy of the Committee for the Relet of Belgium at German General Headquarters, but it also contains an intimate account of his stay at the headquarters of General Von Bissing in Brussels. No other American has had such an opportunity to study at close range the attitude of the German military leaders, and no other volume so adequately explains the world riddle of German activities during recent years. Professor Kellogg lived for months with the German commanders. He knows from their own lips their aims and their principles of life. His book is a revelation.

[blocks in formation]

THE WAR AND THE SPIRIT OF YOUTH An inspiring interpretation of the spirit of these times, as touching as it is true. The volume includes three notable Atlantic contributions, written by a Frenchman, an Englishman, and an American,— all pointing from different premises to a single conclusion. This conclusion is that the generation now culminating in manhood is passing through darkness into light brighter than any dawn the world has known.

YOUNG SOLDIERS OF FRANCE
JUVENTUS CHRISTI

THE SOUL'S EXPERIENCE

The volume includes:

By Maurice Barrès

By Anne C. E. Allinson

By Sir Francis Younghusband

The spirit of this volume is the spirit of youth learning in the Book of Life, trusting that the best is yet to be, and in that faith reading unafraid and with shining eyes to the end. A charming example of bookmaking. $1.00

THE ASSAULT ON HUMANISM
By PAUL SHOREY

This eloquent defence of classical training, originally published in two parts in The Atlantic, has taken rank among the permanent vindications of the study of the Humanities. It is a book of wide and varied learning, vivacious in style, and trenchant in its onslaught upon the new school" of "practical" educators.
