Political Thought in England from Bacon to Halifax by G. P. Gooch

Oxford University Press, London, New York, Toronto, 1946
(The Home University Library of Modern Knowledge)


Series Note:
"Every volume of the Library is specifically written for it by a recognised authority of high standing. Each volume is complete and independent; but the series has been planned to form a comprehensive whole. The Library is edited by Prof. Gilbert Murray, of Oxford, the Rt. Hon. H. A. L. Fisher, M.P., Prof. J. Arthur Thomson, of Aberdeen, and Prof. W. T. Brewster, of New York."
(Source: Egypt by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge. London, William & Norgate, 1925.)

"The Home University Library was founded in 1911 to place at the disposal of students, wherever they might might be, the fruits of sound learning in all the important branches of present-day knowledge. That aim has been preserved throughout the series of more than 200 titles, and since the Oxford imprint first appeared on the volumes in 1941 fuller resources of scholarship have become open to the Editors, who are now able to seek suitable writers on both sides of the Atlantic. Though all H.U.L. authors are experts in their subjects, they are not selected for their academic distinction alone; they are also skilled in the art of presenting their material and able to unite learning with lucidity. While each book is complete and independent in itself, the series is carefully planned as a whole to cover a wide range under seven main headings: Art; Economics & Business; History & Geography; Literature; Politics & Sociology; Religion & Philosophy; and Science. New volumes are added at frequent intervals and books already in the series undergo careful revision as need and opportunity arise."
