Excerpt

The object of this series is to furnish a survey of the British Empire and its constituent parts in their geographical and allied aspects, together with their economic, administrative, and social conditions, at the present time. History has not been included as an integral part of the scheme, except for the inclusion of a general historical summary in the General Volume; for the rest, historical references have been included only in so far as they were found desirable for the explanation of existing conditions. The history of the Empire has been brought under review elsewhere, notably in the Oxford Historical Geography, edited by Sir Charles Lucas.The series is in six volumes, and the subject- matter is thus distributed:

I. The British Isles and Mediterranean territories ( Gibraltar, Malta, Cyprus).

II. Asiatic territories.

III. African territories (with adjacent islands, Mauritius, &c., St. Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha).

IV. American territories (with the Falkland Islands and dependencies).

V. Australasian territories (including islands in the Pacific Ocean and the British sector in Antarctica).

VI. General.
