BeschreibungExcerpt from Scotland's Work and Worth, Vol. 1
The chapters composing this book have gradually been evolved from a lecture on "Scotland's Place in the World's History," delivered by the author to the Scottish Patriotic Association at Glasgow in February 1902. The first part of the lecture was expanded into a series of twenty-seven articles which appeared in the Scottish Patriot from November 1903 to January 1906. These have now been carefully revised and enlarged to form the bulk of Volume I. The rest of the lecture has, as the result of considerable research, been similarly expanded to form Volume II.
As practically the whole of the second volume deals with the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in their various Scottish interests, it is necessary to explain that, in apportioning space to the several periods dealt with, the principle applied has been that of mental perspective, the view-point being that of Scotland's importance not only to her own children but to the British Empire and to the modern world of thought and energy in general. Hence more attention has been devoted to historically recent events than to earlier occurrences of equal intrinsic interest or importance. Thus, in the earlier periods, the picturesque elements treated once for all by the master hand of Scott have been for the most part omitted.
