amending the instructions to diplomatic officers and the consular regulations relative to expatriation, citizenship, naturalization, and passports; the naturalization regulations promulgated by the Department of Commerce and Labor; a list of the courts having jurisdiction to naturalize aliens; and a list of foreign countries and their rulers.


Professor Munroe Smith, himself the author of one of the best monographs in English on citizenship, said of Mr. Van Dyne's work on that subject that there was little to criticise either in his inclusions or his exclusions." The same thing may well be affirmed of the present volume, on naturalization. It is full of useful matter, selected and put together with sense and judgment and with intelligent appreciation of its significance. Moreover, much of the materials which it contains cannot be conveniently consulted elsewhere; and the work may fairly be pronounced indispensable to those who have to deal, theoretically or practically, with the subject to which it relates.
