Excerpt from Lectures on British Commerce: Including Finance, Insurance, Business and Industry

This volume contains some of the lectures delivered before an audience of students from many countries at the London School of Economics in July and August, 1911.

It can hardly be claimed that the lectures here published represent the whole series, for beyond the commerce and industry of the British Isles, lectures were given on general questions; for example, a most interesting introductory address by Archdeacon Cunningham on the scientific interest in the study of recent commerce. London was described, from the historical point of view, by Sir Lawrence Gomme, and London life, from the human as well as the humorous point of view, by Mr. Pett Ridge. The problems of London traffic were discussed by Mr. Stephenson. Geographical conditions and foreign trade were treated by Mr. Mackinder and Mr. Sargent. The social and political life of England was dealt with by Mr. Lees Smith in a series of lectures, and he also gave a lecture on India in a set descriptive of commercial conditions in the Dominions and Colonies. These last were described by Mr. Griffith, Mr. Ben Morgan, and Mr. Chiappini. At the end of the course, lectures on technical and commercial education in England were given by Dr. Walmsley and Mr. Graham.

The lectures, therefore, covered a wide field. Those published in the present volume present at least an excellent example of the style and character of the others.
