HON. JOSEPH WHITE,
SEC. ETARY OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF
Your counsel and encouragement led me to give,
my college teaching, greater prominence to studies adapted to prepare young men to perform their duties as citizens of the United States than is usually given in our Colleges. In view of that fact, and of your zeal and labors in the cause of education and government, I beg leave to inscribe to you this effort to aid my young countrymen in preparing themselves for the work before them.
The importance of the study of the Scienco of Government in a country where every one has an influence in the affairs of government, does not need to be argued. Books suitable for its study in our educational institutions should be furnished. This volume is designed as a textbook for our higher institutions. It contains, in a compact form, the facts and principles which every American citizen ought to know. It may be made the basis of a brief, or of an extended course of instruction, as circumstances may require. Though primarily designed as a textbook, the general reader will find every portion of it perfectly intelligible.
