Alden was Head of English, History and Government Departments at the Naval Academy.

Thus, though it is peculiarly adapted to naval officers, it should have, in time, a real meaning for all students of American foreign relations. This book, in its original form, was written seventeen years ago to meet the needs of the Naval Academy. And now, to meet similar needs, it is continued to the present year.
