A History of Modern France - Vol. 1

By Alfred Cobban | Go to book overview

EDITORIAL FOREWORD
IT is often urged that world history is best written without the limitations of frontiers, that, for example, a history of the development of Western Europe has more historical validity than 'nationalist' histories of France, Germany, the Low Countries, and Britain. Nevertheless it is national character, national development, and national power, which incite the curiosity of most of us, and it is these things which seem to be behind most of the international problems with which we are faced to-day. Therefore, in preparing the plan OF THE PELICAN HISTORY OF THE WORLD it was decided that the old and familiar emphasis upon national history has meant sufficient to justify its continuance in this series.Each volume is written by a specialist, and the emphasis given to such matters as trade, religion, politics, foreign relations, intellectual and social life, varies and must vary between volume and volume, but the interplay of nationalisms is as much part of national history as internal events, and it is hoped that THE PELICAN HISTORY OF THE WORLD will be both a series of national histories and, in the true sense, a history of the modern world.The following eight volumes have already been published:
A History of the United States: Vol. 1, Colonies to Nation; Vol. 2, Nation to World Power, by J. E. Morpurgo and Russel B. Nye.
A History of Modern China, by Kenneth Scott Latourette.
A History of Modern France: Vol. 1, Old Régime and Revolution, 1715-1799; Vol. 2, From the First Empire to the Fourth Republic, 1799-1945, by Alfred Cobban.
A History of New Zealand, by Keith Sinclair.
A History of Spain and Portugal, by William C. Atkinson.
A History of Modern, Japan, by Richard Storry.
