Robinson wrote this book to introduce American students to an important part of history that wasn't taught extensively at schools and colleges in the United States. The author discusses the growth of Great Britain, with particular emphasis on recent years, as progress had been quite rapid in the 100 years prior to his book's publication. Newfoundland appears as a topic in both chapters four and twenty-three, as both a British colony and neighbor to the Dominion of Canada. In chapter four, Robinson explains how the importance of the fishery to Britain lead to the colonization of the island and the resulting problems with the French. Chapter twenty-three includes a further description of Newfoundland's fishery, her government, and the possibility of joining Confederation.
