"The editor of the following volume having, like so many others, long vainly sought light on this most interesting subject, first found it in the "Past, Present, and Future" of H.C. Carey. The principles there contained are enlarged, expanded, and corrected by the test of subsequent events in his "Principles of Social Science;" a work which, it disbelieved, no one capable of understanding it can carefully study without feeling that the Newton of Social Science has indeed appeared. In the years that have now elapsed since Mr. Carey's work was written, and since his first volume was given to the world, there have been many changes, and most especially in the facts presented by these United States, but the editor has deemed it best to give them here as they had been there presented, believing that the careful student may find in them the causes of those greater changes which are now in course of progress. That this volume may be of some use in impressing upon the rising generation that the true principles of Social Science are in perfect accordance with the great precepts of Christianity, and may thus help to hasten the reign of universal peace and justice upon earth"--Preface.
