Excerpt from A History of England for High Schools and Academies
In offering a new History of England for use in preparatory schools, the authors have borne in mind the history requirement recently adopted by several leading colleges and universities. The proposed full year course admits of something more than a narrative of political events occurring between the Roman conquest and the reign of Victoria. The student may hope to get some comprehension of the various factors that have worked together to produce modern Britain. The physical environment afforded by the British Isles, the race traits of the peoples that have occupied the land, the methods by which they have wrought out industrial prosperity, the measures by which they have attained self-government, all are essential to an adequate understanding of the growth of the English nation. Within the limits imposed by text-book dimensions we have endeavored to bring out these phases of the national life.
The part played in the history of the British Isles by the Celtic element in the population has been developed more fully than is usual, not only because Wales, Cornwall, Scotland, and Ireland are integral parts of Britain, but because of the reflex influence the long race contest has exercised upon the national character.
