The following are some of the subjects treated of in the course of our investigation :

Climate and geographical conditions ; plıysical and mental characteristics ; ideas, general, religious, moral, and political; the relation between parent and child; the relation between ruler and subject; the relation between men and women; the respective influence of warfare and peace upon national development; manners and customs; political revolutions ; religious persecutions ; literature and science; the press and speech, etc.
