Excerpt from Essentials in English History (From the Earliest Records to the Present Day) This is the third of the series of Essentials in History, designed for use in secondary schools, and arranged on the system recommended in the Report on the Study of History in Schools by the Committee of the American Historical Association. Dr. Wolfson's book, Essentials in Ancient History, describes the origins of civilization in Egypt and Mesopotamia, the bloom of Greece, the rise of Rome, the spread of Hellenic civilization, and the decay of the Roman Empire. Professor Harding's volume follows with the later mediaeval and modern European history, from about 800 A.D. to the present time. This present volume is a consecutive account of English history. The fourth and final volume treats of American history. The title "Essentials" suggests that the authors of all the volumes have addressed themselves to the things which have really been significant and vital in the development of western civilization. Personalities and events, however striking in themselves, which have not had a clear and definite effect in the movement of the world, are omitted, in order that in the brief space available the essentials may be more clearly presented. It is the plan of the whole series to give a maximum amount of space to the text, and to reduce the pedagogic apparatus to small dimensions, depending upon the teacher to secure a knowledge of the text, and to bring out its significance in class work. Each volume is divided into a number of chapters corresponding nearly to the number of weeks in a school year. The texts are continuous, although the numbered sectional headings in the margin show the progress of thought and the chronological sequence. Each author has in a few prefatory pages indicated how he thinks his book may best be used; and all are alike in adding to each chapter a brief bibliography referring to "Geography," "Secondary authorities," "Sources," and "Illustrative works," intended to be a quick and easy way of referring pupils to such additional readings as the teacher may think satisfactory.
