PREFACE

This History of England was planned and has been written with an especial view to its use in Schools, and among younger students who read the subject. It contains, first, a connected relation of the main facts of the political and constitutional history in due chronological order; secondly, a sketch as thorough as space would allow, of the course and progress of the language, literature, and social life of the English people, in a series of chapters at the end of the various periods into which the history naturally falls.

We have tried to make the book a history not merely of England or England and Wales, in the narrower sense, but of the whole British Empire, and have given as much space as we could command to the history

of Scotland and Ireland, our old and new Colonial Atrotres, and the British domination in India.

While we have not shrunk from noticing institutions and events for the full understanding of which the beginner may require the teacher's oral help; and while we have thought it well to give the most dramatic and pathetic incidents of the story wherever we could in the very words of a contemporary authority, we have nevertheless tried to write in a simple, straightforward style, and have added a brief glossary of those few unusual or technical words we have been unable to avoid, or explain in the text.

Maps, Plans, Tables, and Pedigrees have been supplied in sufficient detail to enable the reader to get a true idea of the relative positions of the persons or places named in the text.
