Professor Fueter attracted the attention of historical scholars all over the world by his admirable Geschichte der neueren Historiographie (M unich, 1911). I ts worth was quickly recognized by its being translated into French in an enlarged edition with additional material from the hand of the author. The same keen insight, excellent judgment, and great breadth of interest and reading which characterized this History of Modern Historical Writing is also seen in his Welt geschichte der letzten hundert Jahre, 1813-1920 (Z iirich, 1921). In two respects Professor Fueter is peculiarly well equipped to write aH istory of theM odern World. A side from his scholarly historical training, as aS wiss he is able to look down from his neutral heights upon the rest of Europe with singular detachment and impartiality. Rarely have such heated questions as theW orld War, the I rish question, or the American War of Secession been treated with such succinctness, fairness and understanding. The second advantage which Professor Fueter enjoys is the fact that through various kinds of newspaper work he has come into direct contact with the great problems of the day. The habit of seizing what is vital rather than what is traditional is reflected in this book. He has thrown overboard much that is usually found in histories of the pineteenth century to make room for what he considers more important. Though one may, perhaps, not always completely agree with his account, one can hardly fail to be interested and stimulated by the originality and vigor with which he presents it. Except for a very few slight corrections or modifications made at the request of the author, the translation adheres, it is hoped, as closely to the German edition as is consistent with readable English. For convenience of reference the chapters are nimibered consecutively instead of by Books as in the original (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
