  • The France of Today
    By Major General A. W. Greely, U.S. Army, with 26 Illustrations.
    The author’s early feeling that France might be little more than an aggregation of fanatics is altered by a months-long opportunity to get to know its people and everyday life. In truth, he says, this country is home to an admirable and intelligent people who are in the process of developing enlightened social legislation. Related Subjects: Brittany, France; France.
  • Belgium: The Innocent Bystander
    By William Joseph Showalter, with 36 Illustrations.
    Neutral Belgium has been overcome by the tides of war. Her peace-loving yet gallant people have suffered greatly and earned the respect of friend and foe alike. Related Subjects: Belgium; World War I.
  • The Foreign Born in the United States with 14 Illustrations
    In the United States today one person in every seven was born outside our borders – 13.5 million in all. The last decade’s influx of immigrants has been a population movement of volume and rapidity unequaled in history. Related Subjects: Immigration – United States.
