Excerpt from The Story of the Empire
This Is the third volume of the series of Empire text-books written for the League of the Empire in accordance with the bequest of the late Mr. Spitzel.
It is intended both for the middle forms of Secon dary schools and for the highest classes of Elemen tary schools. In View of this latter Object, and of the fact that the vast majority of future citizens of the Empire receive all the preparation they ever get for the intelligent exercise of their votes in Elemen tary schools, special stress has been laid upon Citizen Ship upon those factors in History which have had the most direct and important bearing upon the development of the Empire, and upon the rights, duties, and responsibilities of the citizen. Minutiae of facts and dates have been reduced to the narrowest limits but the connection between History and Geography has been emphasized throughout, and an attempt has been made to explain in the Simplest possible language what the British Empire is, and how it grew.
