Geography that, rightly understood and rightly taught, it forms a most valuable introduction to the duties, responsibilities, and privileges of citizenship. It trains and develops the faculty of sympathetic imagination, without which it is impossible to appreciate other points of view or to putr oneself in the position of other people living in environments unlike ones own. It can engender precisely that attitude of mind and outlook on life which will have to become far commoner than at present if the democracies of the world are to learn the difficult art of collective living, and if the ideas underlying theL eague of Nations are to be translated into realities. But, while it is thus essentially a liberalising and humane study, Geography is, at the same time, eminently useful in the narrower and more utilitarian sense.
