Excerpt from An Outline of Industrial History: With Special Reference to Problems, of the Present Day

The object of this little book is to sketch lightly some of the facts and phenomena which lie between school-boy history and the politics of the man. Modern life is so complicated, and the development of the last two hundred years has proceeded so rapidly, that those who have not specialized in history find it difficult to connect what they have learnt in their youth with the problems upon which they are called to express an opinion in manhood's days. The historian, confining himself to documentary evidence and, in general, limiting his view to times so far remote that his interpretations may be free from suspicion of prejudice or party feeling, endeavours to draw a picture of things as they were, without reference to things as they are or may be. It is an inevitable result of his method that he should, as a rule, stop short of the problems which belong to his own age. And it is equally inevitable in periods of rapid social, economic, and political change, that the predominant features of one epoch should fade speedily and be replaced by others, quite different, in the next. Successive movements rise to maturity, and die away, to be followed by events which could hardly have been foreseen a quarter of a century before.
