Excerpt from The Oxford Student's History of India

The three earlier revisions of this book were directed almost exclusively to the correction of minute inaccuracies, the paging and bulk of the volume remaining unaltered. On this occasion, while the process of minute correction has been continued and possibly completed, the principal purpose of the revision has been different. When the book was first planned, I was requested to make it small and condensed. Now that it has been widely used for six years, experienced teachers ask that the historical facts should be narrated in fuller detail, that the causes of important revolutions should be clearly explained, that the state of society in different periods should be described, that the story of India under the Crown should be told at greater length, that the narrative should be brought down to the present time, that a sketch of the nature of the sources or original authorities should be supplied, and that the number of maps and illustrations should be largely increased. The advantages to be obtained by adopting those suggestions seem to outweigh the evil of increased bulk. A book as highly condensed as the earlier editions were must be rather dry, and omit so much that the truth is apt to be distorted. On the other hand, the writer of a school history should be extremely careful not to overload his pages. Young students should not be burdened with anything like the mass of detail which is proper in a history composed on a large scale. The author has tried to attain the golden mean by complying to a considerable extent with the suggestions offered, while refusing to insert much matter which some people would prefer to include. Special attention has been paid to simplicity of language and the avoidance of difficult words.
