Excerpt

In conformity with the plan adopted in the preparation of ANCIENT CIVILIZATION, for American readers, material from both the three-volume and the twovolume editions of Professor Seignobos "Histoire de la Civilisation" has been used. Some omissions have also been made.

This volume, like the rest of the author's works, has the charm of graphic presentation. The chapters on French history and those which have to do with social conditions are especially noteworthy. Some corrections have been made in foot-notes and a few slight changes have been made in the body of the text without calling attention thereto. The editorial notes and corrections are confined largely to the material on American history.

I am under obligation to my colleague, Arthur H. Wilde, Professor of History, for the translation of, and notes on, the first five chapters of this volume. The rest of the volume was translated by Miss Margaret Richie Wiseman, Professor of French in Hardin College, Missouri. I am likewise indebted to my colleagues in the Department of History, Dr. Royal B. Way and Dr. Arthur G. Terry, for their critical reading of a large part of the manuscript.
