"This book contains all the stories I have written that are not included in East and West. The tales in that collection were of about the same length and written on the same scale and so it seemed convenient to publish them together in a single volume. Most of the stories which I have now gathered together are very much shorter. Some were written many years ago, Others more recently. They appeared in magazines and were afterwards issued in book form. To the first lot I gave the title of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and except for Ray Long, who was then its editor, would never have been written....: - Preface from The Complete Short Stories of W.

Garvie on Good Friday, 1929, upon hearing of his death...." - Bishop Brent - A Biographical Sketch from Things That Matter: The Best of the Writings of Bishop Brent

But this large volume was intended for specialists and will hardly attract the general reader...." - Preface from Byzantium: Its Triumphs And Tragedy

That the present volume will at all adequately fill up a very obvious blank I can hardly hope; but it is offered as an attempt, however imperfect, to give the English reader in commentary form the results of the modern criticism of the Gospel so admirably set forth, e.g. in E.F. Scott's The Fourth Gospel, its Purpose and Theology...." - Preface from The Moffatt New Testament Commentary: The Gospel Of John

The great work of nineteenth-century theology was carried out for the most part by scholars who had undergone intensive training in the idealist movement in philosophy. It is no derogation of the achievement of that time to say that this simple conjunction of two disciplines is no longer possible today...." - General Introduction from Ethics

The Republic

By Plato (Translated Into English By B. Jowett, M.A.)

This book is in good condition. There is significant wear on the front, back, spine, and edges of the cover boards. The corners of the book are bumped, and there is a large ink stain on the back cover board. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and there are markings on the front end page and the title page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. "The Republic is undoubtedly one of Plato's masterworks and one of the most influential and widely read books in the history of philosophy. It is also devilishly difficult to truly understand. There are any number of reasons for this, but one of them is the sheer breadth of topics and issues that Plato introduces over the course of the dialogue. Readers must make sense not only of those issues in their own right but they must also understand them in relation to the larger themes and arguments of the work. This is, to be sure, a daunting task, particularly for readers who are approaching the dialogue for the first time. In his book, Gerasimos Santas aims to help the reader better understand The Republic by focusing on its central argument -- that we are better off just than unjust. He does this, though, through a particular methodological lens. In his preface, Santas states that The Republic is "a book that is always contemporary," and this sentiment carries through in the focus and method of his book. Santas divides his attention between offering a text-based exegesis of Plato's arguments regarding justice and critically engaging in the text in a way that is highly informed by the works of other, more contemporary, thinkers. The result is a book that gives its readers some grounding in the basic threads of argument in The Republic while also encouraging and empowering them to engage the text and see the arguments as making philosophical claims that are still relevant and worthy of our consideration today. Indeed it is this last thing -- Santas's critical engagement with the text and emphasis on getting the reader involved in its debates and arguments -- that is the real strength of this book...." - Understanding Plato's Republic Reviewed by Michelle Jenkins, Whitman College

But Robertson's narrative is necessarily brief, forming only part of a more extended work; and neither the British, nor the Castilian author, was provided with the important materials for relating this event, which have been since assembled by the industry of Spanish scholars...." - Preface from Volume I of History Of The Conquest Of Mexico: With A Preliminary View Of The Ancient Mexican Civilization And The Life Of The Conqueror Hernando Cortes In Three Volumes
