56 Misrcelaneous PubMicalioesw of CRIME AND THE FAMILY.-By Hon. Simeon Nash, Author of i Morality and the State," " Pleading and Practice under the Codes of Ohio," etc. i2mo. Cloth. t 25 [From the We.tern Jurist.1 "This is a most excellent and practical treatise on the cause of crime. It is by the Hlon. Simeon Nash, who was for a long time upon the Bench in Ohio, and ,,hose attention was called to the subject by the frequent oc- casion he had, during his services on the Bench, to pass sentence upon boys found guilty of crimes. He discusses the subject in a plain, straight- forward, practical manner, and shows with considerable conclusiveness that the cause of crime is intimately and practically connected with family government, or, rather, the want of it. . . . The work will be found of much interest to the reader, and, we have no doubt, of great value to the public." [From tie Literary Wsorld.] "There is common sense and wisdom enough in 'CRIME AND THE FAM- nLy' to furnish a score of -olumes of average weight. .. . This book is clear, direct, practical, and in all respects well adapted to its end. We confidently commend it to parents, sharing the author's opinion that the true policy is to prevent crimes, and that education begins at home." [From tife C'ristian Union.] "CRIME AND THE FAMILY is a book which should be read, as a matter of conscience, by every parent. There are comparatively few families in which crime is positively taught, but so much ill-doing maybe traced back to the omission of proper parental care and instruction. . . . The au- thor is by no means an advocate of that home tyranny which is in many families the only alternative of carelessness, but he attaches particular importance to the influence of parental example." [From the P1iladelphia Inqsirer.] "However we may wish to regard the subject, certain it is that those who have studied the biography of crime, have traversed our police courts and prisons, and interrogated the criminal, all tell the story cf defective, or misdirected, or wholly deficient training at home, accompanied by evil associations elsewhere, as the sufficient explanation of social iniquity . . . Judge Nash has done great service to the cause of legal morality in di- recting attention to a subject bearing so immediately upon the welfare of society." [From the Iowa State Register.] "Judge Nash treats this important subject in a calm, sensible way, in- culcating many truths which it would be well for parents to heed. We can unhesitatingly recommend this work to parents and others."
