Studies in Empire and Trade Longmanı, Green & Co., 1923. Cheaper issue, 10., 6d. net, " Mr. Jeudwine has a fine sense of the romance of bis subject.

An appendix of documents of a more varied character completes the volume a fascinating side of world history.”—The Times Literary Supplement.

“There is scarcely a page in the book which does not state the old historical facts in a new (and truer) way : .. and he has collected a vast number of facts which duller historians have overlooked. This is not a sloppy declaration of new visions and original principles. It is a restatement of the facts of a very important department of history."

The book is a comprehensive and scholarly one, and will prove of value to students of commercial relations, as well as to all who are interested in the birtb and development of the great Western Empires." —New York Herald.

“D'autres nations font céder des intérêts de commerce
à des intérêts politiques; celle-ci (l'Angleterre) a toujours
fait céder ses intérêts politiques aux intérêts de son commerce.
C'est le peuple du monde qui a le mieux su se prévaloir à la
fois de ces trois grandes choses, la religion, le commerce, et la
liberté.” Montesquieu : "De l'Esprit des Lois.” Bk. XX, ch.7.
