The second volume of the EPOCHS OF AMERICAN HISTORY aims to follow out the principles laid down for "THE COLONIES," the study of causes rather than of events, the development of the American nation out of scattered and inharmonious colonies.

Streitfragen des Sozialismus in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart

Von

Eduard Bernstein

>>Es hat nichts auf sich, wenn die Erinnerung, die mit Vorliebe das festh"alt, was erfreute, uns die Vergangenheit sch"oner erscheinen l"asst, als sie war, und es ist nur berechtigt, wenn unser Wollen und Wünschen uns durch den Ausblick auf eine Zukunft, wie sie sein kann, zum Kampf für sie begeistert. Die Gegenwart aber will erkannt sein, wie sie ist.<<

A Modern Utopia –by: H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells's proposal for social reform was the formation of a world state, a concept that would increasingly preoccupy him throughout the remainder of his life.

Like most utopists, he has indicated a series of modifications which in his opinion would increase the aggregate of human happiness. Basically, Wells' idea of a perfect world would be if everyone were able to live a happy life. This book...

The Philippics –by: Marcus Tullius Cicero

A philippic is a fiery, damning speech delivered to condemn a particular political actor. The term originates with Demosthenes, who delivered an attack on Philip II of Macedon in the 4th century BCE.

Cicero consciously modeled his own attacks on Mark Antony, in 44 BC and 43 BC, on Demosthenes’s speeches, and if the correspondence between M. Brutus and Cicero are genuine [ad Brut. ii 3.4, ii 4.2], at least the fifth and seventh speeches were referred to as the Philippics in Cicero’s time. They were also called the Antonian Orations by Aulus Gellius. It is ironic that they were n...
