Présentation de l'éditeur :

Bentham sgreat reforms in Srffi c2il law are so perfected and achieved that his name 5ce are in danger of being forgotten. A dam Smith 08 I toy destroyed the old fallacy that bullion was wealth 18 w Srie can read parts of his great work without im 3z Such to some extent has been the fate of Canning. gi 0) p. art of his life-work was the dissolution of the so- 2- wy A lliance, and the assertion of the principle that I 8- nhad a right to manage its own internal affairs. S: 2. i Caph of nationalism during the last century has so 8c)a pted these premises that no one inquires whoo cS: dthem. No one now infers that the meeting of the 8the Kaiser will result in a combination against the IS V. Sworld, no one imagines the Hague Conference into a union of governments against peoples. Many ifficulties with which Canning contended are now unthinkable, and some of his principles have descended from novelty to platitude. But even so, great honour should be paid to their earliest upholder, to the man who first foresaw and promoted the growth of national liberty on the Continent of Europe, when a league of despots had a real existence and yrhen freedom of opinion was more an ideal than a fact A part from its international character the policy of Canning abounds in lessons for the England of to-day.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
