The Historian's Business, and Other Essays

Excerpt

Three of the articles and lectures included in this volume were printed in the 1930's. The others were all published between 1951 and 1957. For permission to reprint them here it is a pleasure to acknowledge the kindness of the Council of the Royal Historical Society, of the editors of the Economic History Review, the English Historical Review, History, the Listener, and the University of Edinburgh Journal, of Jonathan Cape Ltd., and of Messrs. Macmillan & Co. Full particulars of the original place and date of publication are given in the headnotes.

My wife and I wish also to acknowledge with gratitude all the help and encouragement we have had, in making this selection of her brother's papers, from Janet Pares, his widow, from Professor John Bromley, and, above all, from Dr. Lucy S. Sutherland, to whom we are still further indebted for the introductory memoir.

R. A. H.
