Excerpt

This volume, small though it is, has a long history. I wrote the first draft of it twenty years ago, with the intention of including it in my Intelligent Man's Guide Through World Chaos, but only a small section of it was finally used in that book, and several times since I have done a little work on it with the intention of publishing it separately. During the past year I have rewritten it, so that only a very little of my draft of twenty years ago survives. I have, however, to thank Mr. Victor Gollancz and Mr. Alfred Knopf, who published my Intelligent Man's Guide in Great Britain and in the United States, for permission to make use of the small part of it which did finally appear in that work. By far the greater part of the present volume is new: I make no claim that it is more than a very elementary introduction to a wide subject. My reason for publishing it is that, as far as I know, no similar brief introduction exists.
