Roads to the Past

In studying the books that fall into this section, we feel as if we should reword our signpost.  Instead of "Roads to the Past," perhaps it should be "Roads to the Future."  The authors of these books wish their readers to survey the road over which man has traveled with a new kind of discernment which will enable them to see the road ahead more clearly, and will make them better able to overcome and avoid the complications which lie in it.

From the introduction to the World Histories section of Five Years of Children's Books, page 291.
