The Footprints of Time: and a Complete Analysis of the American System of Government: With a Concise History of the Origin and Progress of Civilization, the Relation of the Old World to the Free Institutions of the New, the Establishment and Growth of the English Colonies and of the United States of America

R. T. Root, 1881 - 840 Seiten
The object of this book is to supply the means of forming an accurate idea of the American government. The author has adopted the proposition that the highest style of government is one "of the people, by the people, and for the people" and believes that a constant progress, commencing in the earliest times, has reached its full devleopment in the Great Republic. The Footprints of Time traces through all history, noting the gradual unfolding of institutions, the rise and fall of empires, the causes that produced and destroyed the ancient republics, and the origin of forces that give strength an stability to modern civilization.
