The purpose and scope of an introduction in these days have become much wider. Many a time it is not merely an introduction to the work which is being published but is also an introduction to the subject treated therein. That is not all. A history of the subject treated is expected to be given, giving the history the writer of an introduction is also expected to solve knotty historical as well as antiquarian problems relating to the subject. Thus an introduction is many a time more in the nature of an independent treatise than confined strictly to its original purpose of introducing the reader to the work.
