APPENDIX I AN HISTORICAL READING LIST

These lists of readings are divided into two groups, "Standard Works" and "Recommended Works." Generally speaking, the "Standard" authors are so designated because the scope, literary distinction, and influence of their writings have given them an especially high place in historiography. They are entitled to be regarded as classics. Some of them are to be used with care, for their conclusions have been modified by later writings; in using each standard historian the reader should, if possible, refer to a recent critique of his work. But their place in the development of historical knowledge, their methods, and their style and ideas are worthy of special attention.
