Excerpt from Egypt and Western Asia in Antiquity
This accumulation has led to a complete change in the manner of treatment. History is no longer a merely superficial account of events which are conspicuous on the surface, - battles and sieges and dynastic changes. It seeks to... trace the causes of events; it concerns itself not only with political but also with social phenomena; it reconstructs society, and explains the development Of civilization as this follows the changing fortunes of nations. It is no longer a more or less illusory romance, but a science which deals with the highest interests Of man kind, and teaches Wisdom from the lessons of the past.
