History of contemporary civilization

Professor Seignobos has in "Contemporary Civilization" brought the narrative down to the year 1888. It sustains the high level of excellence which distinguishes the volumes on "Ancient Civilization" and "Mediaeval Civilization." Of particular value are the chapters on The European Peoples Outside of Europe; Arts, Letters, and Sciences in the Nineteenth Century; Economic Reforms in France and in Europe; and Democracy and Socialism.
