Excerpt from A Short History of England, Vol. 1 of 2

In this brief history of England I have endeavored to present within the compass of about four hundred pages the main features of England's story from the earliest times to the present day. It retains, on a smaller scale, the essential characteristics of my larger work, with many omissions of details and some additions, chiefly of a geographical and biographical character.

The aim of the book is to be instructive as well as interesting. In it I have tried to tell a clear and simple story, avoiding technical expressions, and yet passing over no important features of the history that are necessary for the proper understanding of the subject. The narrative is made as continuous as possible, that the reader may follow in unbroken sequence the thread of the story. It is accompanied with a large number of newly selected illustrations, and an ample supply of maps and chronological tables. The elaborate bibliographies contained in the larger work have been omitted, and only a brief but selective list of the best books of moderate length has been retained. The history has been brought down to date in matters of scholarship as well as chronology, and contains many opinions and statements not to be found in the larger work.

The book traces in rapid survey the development of the people and institutions of England from Anglo-Saxon times to the close of the year 1911, and shows by what steps the primitive organization of a semi-tribal people has been transformed into the highly complicated political and social structure of the United Kingdom and the British Empire.
