SHORT REVIEWS

PLA

by Paul Johnstone.Harvard, $25.00. For anyone with a real interest in the construction and capabilities of early ships, or a real curiosity about whether the dugout preceded the reed boat or the skin boat preceded both, this generously illustrated, pleasantly written volume will be a delight. Since Johnstone died in 1976, the book has been edited by Sean McGrail.
