From the cover: This book may be regarded as a Companion to the study either of History or of Literature. The author divides the century into three periods of approximately equal length, and within those periods traces the development of schools of thought in the spheres of politics, economics, religion, science and art. Technical and specialized thought is, of course, beyond the range of the book. His aim is to give a general picture of the period in its intellectual and psychological aspects. Most of the great men of the period between Edmund Burke and Bernard Shaw come under review.
