History and Its Neighbors

Excerpt

GEORGE LINCOLN BURR, my old teacher, asked me to write this book many years ago; and he repeated the request not long before he died when, for a few days, in the autumn of 1934, we were together at Deep Springs, California. The first part of the book is based upon the outline of the course he used to give in The Science and Art of History; and it is further indebted to him for suggestions he made to me from time to time in his talks with me and in his letters.

My thanks are here given to the following publishers for permission to quote from books of which they control the copyright: Appleton-Century Company, The New History and the Social Studies, by Harry Elmer Barnes; F. S. Crofts and Company, Everyman his own Historian, by Carl L. Becker; Columbia University Press, History of Magic and Experimental Science, by Lynn Thorndike; Henry Holt and Company, Habit, by William James; Alfred A. Knopf, Factors in Modern History, by Albert F.
