EPUB

the Loan Division of the Columbia University Library, and his assistants have lightened my labors by the courteous and efficient manner in which they have placed thousands of volumes at my disposal during the past twelve months.

CHARLES A. BEARD. PARK LANE, NEW MILFORD, CONNECTICUT,

July, 1909.

NOTE. Each extract is numbered, and the source from which it is taken can be found by referring to the proper number in the Table of Contents and List of Citations.

NOTE TO REVISED EDITION

THE extensive use of this volume by teachers of Government and Politics convinces me that the original plan has proved to be fairly satisfactory, and I have, therefore, not recast the work for this edition. I have brought it more nearly abreast current questions by adding extracts from the party platforms of 1912 and selections illustrating presidential preference primaries, changes in the procedure of the House of Representatives, the recall, and the recall of judicial decisions. I have also added the Constitution of the United States, including the latest amendments.

C. A. B. COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, November 14, 1913.
