About the Authors
  • Sampson's Concise History was first published in 1941. Basically it was then a summary, in readable form, of the great Cambridge History, with some personal touches by Sampson. The second edition had a substantial new chapter by R. C. Churchill on twentieth-century literature and appeared in 1961. This 1970 edition, prepared by Mr Churchill, provided a revision of the first thirteen chapters with three additional substantial chapters. At the time of publication, this made it the only complete and up to date survey of world literature in English. The literature of the USA is surveyed in extenso and in its own right. The literatures in English of Ireland, India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies, South Africa and the other African states are also treated.
