Excerpt from The Making of the Roman People

The little volume now offered to the public was originally intended to form a chapter or two in a forthcoming work on the growth and decay of civilisation, as exemplified by the history of Rome. In the writing, however, it has assumed proportions far in excess of what had been contemplated. Consequently, it has seemed to me that it would be somewhat out of place in an inquiry which, in its essential features, must be sociological, economic, political, and institutional. I have decided, therefore, to offer it to the public in a separate, independent form, so leaving it to sink or swim according to its merits.

The origin of the Romans has been in controversy for thousands of years. But the interest in the question has not grown less as the years have passed. On the contrary, it has been quickened and increased by the new problems raised by the advance of science, and by the entirely unexpected light that has been thrown by modern research upon some, at least, of the pertinent evidence.
