From the many war articles appearing in the Atlantic Monthly, only those particularly worthy of more permanent form than the paper covers of the magazine permit have been issued as books. Each of the following titles offers a distinct addition to the best war literature of the day.
SHOCK AT THE FRONT
By WILLIAM TOWNSEND PORTER Shock at the Front' is not a medical treatise, but the story of varied experiences at the Front, written by a physician whose profession has offered unusual opportunity for observation and whose quick appreciation of the humor, pathos, and tragedy of the war scenes has produced a particularly interesting record of his travels. Added to this, the unusual charm of the author's style furnishes another reason for the inclusion of this book in a collection of Atlantic war books.
By VERNON KELLOGG So accurately has Vernon Kellogg described the attitude of the German General Staff, so convincingly has he told of his conversion from a pacificist to a believer in this war to the end,' that an American volunteer in France acknowledges the receipt of his book by saying: The book has left its mark upon me, I am sure. I believe it is about as clear and powerful a picture of the real German menace as has been given. . . . Thanks again for sending it. It has given me more definite views than I had before as to what we were really going to attack, behind the physical armies.' $1.00, postpaid.
THE WAR AND THE SPIRIT OF YOUTH
By MAURICE BARRÈS and others In three striking articles a French man, an Englishman ard an American interpret the hopeful spiritual trend of the times. To those who have already read this little book, its message has come as a welcome conviction; to those who have still to read it, it will bring new hope at a time when our own soldiers are in service.

RELIGION AND THE SCHOOL, By EMIL CARL WILM This book demonstrates two important things. First, the necessity for religious education in our public schools, and second, how such instruction may be given without becoming sectarian in its character. The subject is excellently well treated, and the discussion is especially valuable because of the standing of its author in matters philosophical, Professor Wilm being the successor of Professor Borden P. Bowne, at Boston University, and lecturer on Philosophy at Wellesley College.
