Principles of Political Science By R N Gilchrist. This book is written primarily for students of Indian universities. The course covered in substantially that prescribed by Calcutta University. To bring the subjects abreast of recent developments, in several instances additional material has been incorporated. Most of the qualities peculiar to the arrangement and scope of the book are to be ascribed to the primaiy end for which the book was undertaken. I venture to hope that the volume may be useful also to students outside India, and to any who wish to acquire a general knowledge of political theory and practice. In the text of the book classical quotations and untranslated quotations from modem books the language of which is other than English have been studiously avoided. English is the medium of university instruction in India, and the Indian student, as a rule, is unacquainted with any other modem European language. Latin and Greek are likewise unknown to the Indian student, whose classics are Sanskrit and Arabic or Fetrsian. Throughout the book a knowledge .of Logic and History has been assumed. Students of Political Economy and Political Science in India normally are expected to have passed the Intermediate Examinations in these subjects.
