Excerpt from Greece in the Age of Pericles

In writing this book I have had two objects in view. Firstly, I have tried to make my account of Greece as comprehensive as possible, and to omit none of the main forces that helped to mould Greek civilisation. I have therefore given a good deal of prominence to the social and religious conditions of the country. And next I have tried to treat of Greek history in relation to the general history of Europe. I feel that he who only knows Greek history does not know even that, and that it is only by connecting and comparing Greece with other European states contemporary and subsequent that we can duly appreciate her immense services to civilisation, and distinguish what is permanent and important in her work from what is temporary and trivial. I am conscious that my knowledge is not sufficient to allow me properly to execute so difficult a task, but I have felt that the attempt ought to be made.

I have not given any bibliography of that subject.
