Gateway to the Classics: Conversations on Government by Jane Marcet
Conversations on Government by  Jane Marcet

Front Matter


Nothing appears to me to render a subject so intelligible to a child, as to bring it home to himself. It was under this impression that I have endeavoured to draw familiar parallels between daily occurrences in the limited circle of a school, and those which go on in the more enlarged sphere of a country. In this way I have collected together a few notions respecting governments, which, being treated in the simple language of childhood, will, I trust, prove clear and not uninteresting to my little readers. Correct ideas on such a subject cannot, as it appears to me, be too early inculcated, if it were only to prevent the false impressions which children inevitably acquire in their intercourse with ignorant and prejudiced people.
