"To hope till Hope creates
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
This volume, like its two predecessors, arises from a course of lectures delivered at a Summer School at Woodbrooke, near Birmingham, in August, 1919. The first, in 1915, dealt with “ The Unity of Western Civilization' generally, the second, in 1916, with ‘Progress'. In this book an attempt has been made to trace the same ideas in the last period of European history, broadly speaking since 1870.
It was felt at the conclusion of the course that the point of view was so enlightening and offered so many opportunities of useful further study that it should, if possible, be resumed in future years. A large number of subjects were suggested'The Relations of East and West,' 'The Duty of Advanced to Backward Peoples,' 'The Rôle of Science in Civilization,' &c.—all containing the same elements of '
progress in unity'
in unity' which have inspired the previous volumes.
It was thought that possibly for the next session` World
Reconstructions Past and Present' might be most appropriate.
If any reader feels moved by interest or sympathy with the general idea to send suggestions, either as to possible places of meeting, or topics for treatment or any other kindred matter, they would be welcomed either by the Editor or by Edwin Gilbert, Woodbrooke, Selly Oak, Birmingham.
