Political and literary essays

I have to thank the editors of The Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews, The Nineteenth Century and After and The Spectator for allowing the republication of these essays, all of which appeared originally in their respective columns. No important alterations or additions have been made, but I should like to observe, as regards the first essay of the series — on “The Government of Subject Races ” — that, although only six years have elapsed since it was written, events in India have moved rapidly during that short period. I adhere to the opinions expressed in that essay so far as they go, but it will be obvious to anyone who has paid attention to Indian affairs that, if the subject had to be treated now, many very important issues, to which I have not alluded, would have to be imported into the discussion.

Evelyn Baring, 1st Earl of Cromer was a British statesman, diplomat, and colonial administrator. He was a British controller-general in Egypt during 1879, part of the international Control which oversaw Egyptian finances after the 1876 Egyptian bankruptcy.
