Lancaster Pamphlets offer concise and up-to-date accounts of major historical topics, primarily for the help of students pre-paring for Advanced Level examinations, though they should also be of value to those pursuing introductory courses in universities and other institutions of higher education. Without being all-embracing, their aims are to bring some of the central themes or problems confronting students and teachers into sharper focus than the textbook writer can hope to do; to provide the reader with some of the results of recent research that the textbook may not embody; and to stimulate thought about the whole interpretation of the topic under discussion.
