A singularly clear, thorough, and consistent account of the great movements and great events of the time. Mr. Johnson was well known as one of the most experienced and successful teachers of history at Oxford, and the book has all the merits which the fact of being written by a good teacher can give it. It is clear, sensible, and accurate, and commendably free from fads or bias.
