Excerpt

At the end of this book the reader will find a list of the books to which I have had constant recourse. Long though it is, that list is of course too brief to be regarded as even a sketch bibliography of the subject. Omissions must be explained by the strict necessities of selection rather than by any adverse judgment on my part.

It was impossible, in the range of a single volume, to narrate the history of Scotland and of Ireland along with that of England. The relations between the three countries have been explained whenever it seemed necessary, but in the narrowest compass. For the same reason the history of the British. Empire has here been dealt with only in its relation to the internal history of England.

I am greatly indebted to Mr. A. V. Judges, Lecturer at the London School of Economics, of the University of London, who was good enough to read my typescript, and whose criticisms I took fully into account. And my friend and translator, Hamish Miles, has been, as ever, a most valued counsellor.
