Excerpt from A History of Mediaval Political Theory in the West, Vol. 6It was with the help of my brother that this work on the history of Medi?val Political Theory was begun in 1892; indeed his article on "The Political Theory of St Thomas Aquinas" in the 'Scottish Review,' 1896, was its first published form. He was one of the pupils of Arnold Toynbee at Balliol, and though what he learned from him was mainly in Economics, it was from him, I think, that he learned not only the significance of Economic History and Theory, but also the importance of the history of Political Thought. During the many years of his long service in the Government of India, 1880 to 1916, and in spite of the pressure of his public work, he contributed by his continual sympathy and his careful judgment and criticism to help and correct this work; and happily, in the years after his retirement in 1916 he was able to write a large part of Volume V. I had hoped to finish, as I had begun, with his help, but this was not to be, for he died in 1934, and I can only express something of what he was and did by dedicating this volume to his memory - the memory of an honourable, just, and kindly man, and an indefatigable scholar.Till the last year of his life he was occupied with the materials for this volume, and happily something of his work I have been able to include in it, but only a little of that which he was preparing.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
