American documents, is the last word on the subject. Clark's History of Alaska and Jeannette P. Nichols' book on the peninsula since its acquisition are sketchy but attractive to the layman. Two splendid bibliographical aids, by Robertson and de Tavera, have been provided students of Philippine affairs. Barrows and Elliott have written good historical surveys of the group. The American rĂŠgime has been impersonally reviewed by Le Roy. Former Governor W. Cameron Forbes has discussed, in vigorous fashion, the problems arising out of our control.

Kuykendall's History of Hawaii and The Governance of Hawaii by Littler, are of interest as being the only scholarly writings on the one-time Sandwiches. Much of the literature of American imperialism in the Caribbean is, from the nature of the subject, highly controversial. There are, nevertheless, a number of substantial studies on it. Thus, Jones' survey of our interests in that troubled sphere is a solid work, though now somewhat out of date. His recent Caribbean Backgrounds and Prospects fills along-felt need. Miss Williams' Anglo-American Isthmian Diplomacy is of the highest caliber. Roosevelt and the Caribbean, by Hill, sheds much light in dark places.

The same can be said of Meyer's The United States and the Cuban Revolution of 1917. Jenks' Our Cuban Colony and Knight's The Americans in St. Domingo, on the other hand, incline toward sensationalism. Clark's Porto Rico and its Problems and the Diffie's Porto Rico : A Broken
