Useful and timely. . . . Mr. Clark will perhaps di.'sap- point alike the extreme radicals who regard Australasia as a work- men's paradise and grow enthusiastic over the progress made there by socialism, and those other extremists who like to be told that Australasia is doomed to bankruptcy and famine and demoraliza- tion as the result of socialism and the violation of 'natural law'.
