1920. This new book is a record of the gathering of data in the department of human government by three generations of America's most distinguished thinkers, whose lives cover almost the entire period of the American experiment. Here are included three brilliant essays-expressing and emphasizing the creed which has become the heritage of Henry Adams. The result may be summed up in this remarkable conclusion: Vox populi non est vox Dei. As in physics, so also in mind and administration. The theory of averages leads ever to a lower level. The perfect plebiscite, the democratic ideal, is the synonym not of perfect truth but of disaster and confusion. Contents: The Heritage of Henry Adams; The Tendency of History; A Letter to American Teachers of History: The Problem and The Solutions; and The Rule of Phase Applied to History.
