______________________________________________________________________

The Ancient World will show changes of four distinct kinds :

(1)

Many generalizations of a philosophical nature have been omitted.

(2)

More narrative and more biography have been introduced.

(3)

Abstruse ideas have been retained only when essential

to historical study,and then they have been explained.

(4)

Diction and sentence structure have been simplified.

Besides many radical modifications,it will be found that

few sentences of the Ancient History appear here without at

least a slight alteration.Paragraphs, too, have been shortened;

terms like civilization, state, empire, are discussed in footnotes;

references to maps are more frequent and specific;

more maps and illustrations have been added; and

the suggestions for students' reading have been simplified by

the omission of rare and difficult works.

______________________

Even though West was concerned with The Ancient World's content,

and how it could be perceived by the general public,

he felt it important to speak of the ancient world as it was perceived.

However, truth and openness to many aspects of our ancient past

was deemed to be unacceptable to present to the 'moral' public,

and especially our college youth of the time.

_________________

By the time of World War II the ancient emblem present

on the cover of The Ancient World took on new meaning.

And what copies remained on library shelves were removed,

and many destoryed.

Today we know there is value in understanding of our past,

no matter how astonishing our past may be viewed

in today's values.
