Our Two Democracies at Work. By K. B. Stnellie. (Harrap, 6s.)
Reviewed be IRIS CONLAY
THIS, the second in a seriesiof books planned to bring America and Britain closer together through mutual knowledge of each other's workings, is about their respective foons of government. Both democracies. they should show mainly common characteristics, instead of which one is struck by the differences. The great feature or these books is that the pictures and the lsotype charts may be read without the letterpress and the tale they alone unfold is fascinating and conclusive.
You might think it is impossibly difficult to convey theedifferenee between Presidential Govelltaitent in the U.S.A. and Cabinet Government in the U.K. by means of a chart, but heretit has been done so plainly and directly that the memory retains the pictured effect far longer than it would have retained a written list of facts.
