The experience of all teachers testifies to the lamentable deficiency in historical knowledge among their pupils; not that children dislike the incidents and events of history, for, indeed, they prefer them to the improbable tales which now form the bulk of their reading, but because the books are "dry." Those which are interesting are apt to be lengthy, and the mind consequently becomes confused by the multitude of details, while the brief ones often contain merely the dry bones of fact, uninviting and unreal. An attractive book which can be mastered in a single term, is the necessity of...
This book is not simply an annotated roster of the Society of Dead
Economists. As living economists grapple with modern economic
problems and begin to alter their views, more and more readers are
discovering a need for transitional books, books that bridge the gap
between what economics has been and what it is becoming. A Brief
History of Economics: Artful Approaches to the Dismal Science reflects
this desire for a bridge over sometimes troubled waters.

It is not too much to assert that most of our countrymen acquire at school all the knowledge they possess of
the past history of their country. In view of this fact it is most desirable that a history of the United States for
elementary schools should present not only the essential features of our country's progress which all should
learn, but also many things of secondary consequence which it is well for every young American to know.

The world suffers no shortage of accounting texts. The
many I’ve read over the past 25 years have helped me audit,
prepare, use, and explain corporate financial statements.
Missing in this lettered journey has been a work that
provides context for accounting’s six divisive issues: inflation,
volatility, intangibles, debt, options, and earnings. A brief history
of accounting can fill this void.
Students and practitioners study textbooks designed to explain
the how’s of accounting.
Basketball moves and techniques are analyzed in this fascinating and beautifully produced book. The step-by-step images allow readers to see correct footwork, blocking and shooting moves, and motion across the court so that they can practice what they have learned. The book also includes a brief history of the game, summary of rules, advice about equipment, and warm-up and stretching exercises.
Future historians may well look upon the years 1978–80 as a revolutionary
turning-point in the world’s social and economic history.
In 1978, Deng Xiaoping took the first momentous steps towards
the liberalization of a communist-ruled economy in a country that
accounted for a fifth of the world’s population. The path that
Deng defined was to transform China in two decades from a closed
backwater to an open centre of capitalist dynamism with sustained
growth rates unparalleled in human history....
For more than a millennium, the ancient Olympics captured the imaginations of the Greeks, until a Christianized Rome terminated the competitions in the fourth century AD. But the Olympic ideal did not die and this book is a succinct history of the ancient Olympics and their modern resurgence.Classics professor David Young, who has researched the subject for over 25 years, reveals how the ancient Olympics evolved from modest beginnings into a grand festival, attracting hundreds of highly trained athletes, tens of thousands of spectators, and the finest artists and poets.....
The aim of this work has been to sketch the various periods and styles of architecture with the broadest possible strokes, and to mention, with such brief characterization as seemed permissible or necessary, the most important works of each period or style. Extreme condensation in presenting the leading facts of architectural history has been necessary, and much that would rightly claim place in a larger work has been omitted here. The danger was felt to be rather in the direction of too much detail than of too little. While the book is intended primarily to meet the special requirements...
The purpose of this book is twofold. We realise to-day, as never before, that the fortunes of the world, and of every individual in it, are deeply affected by the problems of world-politics and by the imperial expansion and the imperial rivalries of the greater states of Western civilisation. But when men who have given no special attention to the history of these questions try to form a sound judgment on them, they find themselves handicapped by the lack of any brief and clear resume of the subject. I have tried, in this book, to provide such a summary,...
Tongue, Speech, Language.+-- We speak of the "English tongue" or of the "French language"; and we say
of two nations that they "do not understand each other's speech." The existence of these three words--
+speech+, +tongue+, +language+-- proves to us that a language is something +spoken+,-- that it is a number
of +sounds+; and that the writing or printing of it upon paper is a quite secondary matter. Language, rightly
considered, then, is an +organised set of sounds+.
This work is strictly what its title page imports, a COMPILATION. Fox's "Book of Martyrs" has been made
the basis of this volume. Liberty, however, has been taken to abridge wherever it was thought necessary;--to
alter the antiquated form of the phraseology; to introduce additional information; and to correct any
inaccuracy respecting matters of fact, which had escaped the author of the original work, or which has been
found erroneous by the investigation of modern research.
The Median empire is the least known of all those which held sway for a time over the destinies of a portion
of Western Asia. The reason of this is not to be ascribed to the shortness of its duration: the Chaldæan empire
of Nebuchadrezzar lasted for a period quite as brief, and yet the main outlines of its history can be established
with some certainty in spite of large blanks and much obscurity.
