"A seminar for college students majoring in history held in the autumn of 1968 and sponsored jointly by the history department of the University of Delaware and the Eleutherian Mills-Hagley Foundation provided the occasion for the lectures printed in slightly revised form in this volume. The seminar leaders, chosen because of their interest in the respective fields, were asked to regard their task as primarily pedagogical." -- From the introduction.
