BeschreibungExcerpt from What Is Modern History?
Students of history must to-day find encouragement in the generous hospitality everywhere accorded the study of this subject. Once regarded as one of the accomplishments to be pursued in fashionable boarding schools and practically ignored elsewhere in the educational system, it has now won for itself an assured place and a large and influential clientele. Legislatures are prescribing the study of history in the public schools, colleges are requiring it for admission to their courses, newspapers are advocating its study, while ignorance of history is the unpardonable sin in the eyes of the occasional correspondent who writes for the daily press.
But all is not peace within the walls of Jerusalem. The controversy that was once waged over the desirability of the study of history has now shifted to a consideration of what special field of history should be studied and in this discussion the advocates of the study of modem history are insistent in pressing their claims.
