Mooted Questions of History
by

Publisher: Marlier & co.
Number of pages: 348

Description:
History perhaps can never become an exact science; the human element will inevitably assert itself to some extent. Race and religious sympathies will warp human judgments; but if we have more faithfulness to scientific methods of investigation a more careful application of the rules of evidence in reviewing old authorities and new testimony, with truer and broader perspectives, there are grounds for expecting excellent results in the future.
