HAZEN’S EUROPE SINCE 1815
By CHARLES D. HAZEN, Professor in Smith College
(American Historical Series.) xxvi + 830 pp. 8vo. [Ready in May.]
The aim has been to make the narrative so interesting in style asto attract the student, without sacrificing accuracy or proportion.For the sake of impressiveness it has been necessary to concentrateattention upon a relatively small number of topics, but it ishoped that no important step in the development of modern Europe hasbeen slighted. English history has been interwoven with continentalhistory, and colonial development has received careful treatment. Greatpains have been taken to make the bibliographical apparatus really usefulto the undergraduate.

◖ Teachers of American history, who are looking for the best text-book for their classes, areinvited to examine this new work of Dr. Forman’s. They will find that it excels:
1 In the method of unfolding the story of OUR COUNTRY’SGROWTH
The pupils have before them the story of an ever-growingnation, and step by step they follow its upbuildingfrom small beginnings to its present great proportions.
2 In the special prominence given to the progress of THEWESTWARD MOVEMENT
The story of the marvelous growth of the Middle West,and of the States further West, is told, it is believed,with greater fullness than in any previous school history.The student will see that the greatness of ourhistory is due as much to the Western States as tothose on the Atlantic seaboard.
3 In the treatment of THE BIOGRAPHICAL ELEMENT
The great leaders of our country stand out as real andinteresting personalities, because the author writes theirlives into the main body of the text.
4 In the account given of our COMMERCIAL, INDUSTRIALAND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Throughout the book frequent surveys are made ofAmerican civilization as it existed at successive stages,and in these surveys the pupil learns how we havepassed from the simple life of the seventeenth centuryto the complex life of to-day.
5 In the material provided for THE TEACHERS’ ASSISTANCE
At the end of the chapters are carefully framed questionson the text, with review questions that keep constantlyin mind the points that have been gone over,and with topics for special reading and special references.In the appendix are comprehensive outlines andanalytical reviews.
6 In the fullness and richness of ITS MAPS AND ILLUSTRATIONS
Entirely new maps have been made for the book, andthe illustrations have been selected from authenticsources. Many of the pictures are illustrative of Westernlife in the early days.
7 In the CLEARNESS AND INTEREST OF ITS STYLE
No student can fail to be attracted by the manner inwhich the story is told. The style is simple—sometimesalmost colloquial—but never undignified. Every paragraphin the book is interesting.
