This book is something more than a revision of the author's Essentials in Mediaeva/ and Modern Asistory. As the task of revision progressed, its scope was so enlarged that, by reorganization, extension, and rewriting, the result became practically a new work.

It is now generally recognized that a leading aim of the study of history is to enable one to understand the world of to-day.
Profuse and adequate illustrations and maps are inserted in proper relation to the text.

No pains have been spared to adapt the book to the needs of the schools and to the powers of the pupils. The success
