The author devotes a section (pp. 13-17) to examining the character of the Hebrew Nation. He sums up by saying: "Thus directly or remotely, all the leading traits of the Hebrew national character, its exclusiveness, its elasticity, that active and simple cunning, may be traced to the influence of their religious sentiments combined with their peculiar circumstances" (p.17). Other nationalities examined are the Chinese, the Hindoos (sic), the Greeks and Romans.
