Excerpt from The Making of Modern Germany: Six Public Lectures Delivered in Chicago in 1915

The following six lectures were delivered in the year 1915 at the invitation of the University Lecture Association (in cooperation with the University of Chicago). In preparing them for publication I considered myself free to reshape them, to add, subtract, and fuse, with a view to presenting as close and connected a story of the evolution of modern Germany as was possible under the circumstances. Various features have been added - Footnotes, Maps, a Select Bibliography, and a body of eight Appendices - of which I entertain the hope that they will be found, each in its own way, to supplement and enhance the text.

The lecture form has for the historian many disadvantages, but also undeniably one advantage; as such I look upon the necessity of marching onward by a single designated highway in order that the audience may not lose the sense of movement and direction. Among the often painful disadvantages, I am particularly impressed with the obligation of avoiding, in the interest of a smooth and swift journey, many matters which lie off the highway and yet arouse a most legitimate curiosity. It was to meet this drawback that I have added the features spoken of above, more particularly the Appendices, each of which presents some subject having an immediate value and interest for the reader.
