Thomas Hardy distrusted nineteenth-century efforts to systematize history, believing the human qualities of desire and conflicting loyalties undermined such attempts.

Thus, although he set the courtship of Anne Garland by her three suitors against the larger-than-life backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, he considered his characters' loves and sorrows to be as much the material of history as any record of emperors and generals.This edition is the only one to be based on the novel's manuscript.

It restores Hardy's original punctuation and removes the bowdlerisms forced upon him by the editor of the magazine in which it first appeared.This book is intended for students of Hardy, Victorian fiction, general readers.
