Lectures on Modern history Lectures on Modern history

Publisher Description

Sir John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, known as Lord Acton, was an English historian and master of the principal foreign languages. During his time, he didn’t publish any book, but after he was made Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University, he made a number of incredible lectures. Gathered together, his lectures were published in a form of a book in 1906, which we know as “Lectures on Modern History”. These lectures represent a survey of modern history, enclosing the period from the rise of the state of the modern nation, to the American Revolution.

The value of this book is that it contains around four hundred years of the development of the Western World. Starting with the inaugural lecture of Lord Acton, the book continues with the history of Europe, the American Constitutional Convention, ending with a few pages about the American Revolution.

This book represents a small treasure of history, containing all the information related to the modern history.
