Today Africa is the battleground of Europe's rivalries. Therefore every one has a far greater interest in that continent than previously prevailed. It is fortunate to have available this magnificent presentation of Africa by the American Geographical Society—a book based on airplane study with innumerable excellent photographs. Here are exceedingly valuable data concerning terrain and the population, and information regarding airports, maintenance and history of such developments as Uganda and Kenya settlements. There is a section on preservation of wild life and on the development of the radio. Finally there is an excellent bibliography and an index.
