About The Public Administration of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy

   "My doctoral dissertation on The Public Administration of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy was never published because over-specialized experts who read the version revised for publication persisted in rejecting the aspects of the book in which they were not specialists. The only man who read it and had the slightest idea what it was all about was Salvemini, the great historian from the University of Florence, who was a refugee in this country at the time.

   The book's message could be understood only by an historian who knew the history of Italy, France, and Austria, and was equally familiar with events before the French Revolution and afterwards. But these national and chronological boundaries are exactly the ones recent historians hesitate to cross..."

From The Evolution of Civilizations 

   "Indeed the direction and coordination of scientific activities with respect to world problems requires guidance by persons with a wider perspective than that provided by specialization in the natural sciences alone. Such perspective can best be found in the study of the past. With such a perspective, the techniques I have described in this volume as instruments for the study of the past can be used to guide natural scientists and other workers in dealing with the problems of the present and future."

From Tragedy and Hope

   "The hope for the twentieth century rests on recognition that war and depression are man-made, and needless. They can be avoided in the future by turning from the nineteenth-century characteristics just mentioned (materialism, selfishness, false values, hypocrisy, and secret vices) and going back to other characteristics that our Western Society has always regarded as virtues: generosity, compassion, cooperation, rationality, and foresight, and finding a increased role in human life for love, spirituality, charity, and self discipline."

From The European Middle Ages

   "In our study of the medieval period of Western Civilization we shall study how wealth was organized and then how force was organized. Next we shall see how the organization of wealth was changed and finally we shall see how the organization of force was changed. Lastly, we shall examine changes in the Civilization's ideology and social organization, particularly specific medieval institutions like the Church and the feudal monarchies."

From The Anglo-American Establishment 

   "One wintry afternoon in 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance to the British Empire and to the world as a whole. For these men were organizing a secret society that was, for more than 50 years, to be one of the most important forces in the formulation and execution of British imperial and foreign policy. 

   The three men thus engaged were already well known in England. The leader was Cecil Rhodes, fabulously wealthy empire builder and the most important person in South Africa. The second was William T. Stead, the most famous, and probably also the most sensational, journalist of the day. The third was Reginald Baliol Brett, later known as Lord Esher, friend and confidant of Queen Victoria, and later to be the most influential adviser of King Edward VII and King George V."

From Weapons Systems and Political Stability

   "One thing we learn from experience with power is that force is effective in subjecting the will of one person or group to that of another person or group only in a specific situation. There can be no general subordination of wills, because, as situations change, the wills of both parties may change."
