The Development of Thrift

     scope and their educating influences for thrift.  It abounds in
     suggestions of value.”—­Chicago Inter-Ocean.

The Principles of Relief

Cloth, $2.00 net

“Text-books of sociology which are at once theoretical and practical, aiding alike the citizen who seeks to fulfil intelligently his duty toward the dependent classes and the volunteer or professional worker in any branch of social service, are rare enough; and Dr. Devine’s book is a valuable addition to this class of literature....  Comprehensive in scope, and masterly in treatment, the book shows thorough knowledge of all phases of the relief problem of to-day; and it combines with the student’s careful presentation of facts as they are, the humanist’s vision of what they yet may be.”—­Boston Transcript.
“A distinct contribution to the literature of scientific philanthropy.  It marks a step in the development of that literature, for in it are brought to consciousness, perhaps for the first time fully, the underlying principles on which the charity organization society movement is based.  Moreover, it undertakes to give a comprehensive statement of the elementary principles upon which all relief giving, whether public or private, should rest; and it correlates these principles with the general facts of economics and sociology in such a way as to leave no doubt in the mind of the reader that the author has mastered his subject.  The point of view of the book is constructive throughout, as its author evidently intends; and it is safe to say that for many years to come it will be, both for the practical worker and for the scientific student, the authoritative work upon the ‘Principles of Relief.’”—­Annals of the American Academy.
