About the Book

“A life which includes the history of his political career, of his work for Greece during the war and the part Greece has played in the Balkan triangle under the leadership of this great patriot.”
— A.L.A. Catalog 1926
“Contents: The boyhood and early manhood of an unredeemed Greek: A revolutionary by profession; Venizelos solves the Cretan question; Venizelos intervenes in Greece; The Balkan alliance surprises Europe; Turkey is crushed by her former Balkan subjects; The second Balkan war and the treaty of Bukarest; Venizelos reorganizes Greece internally; Venizelos offers to Join the entente against Germany; Constantine tries to keep Greece neutral; Venizelos goes to Saloniki: Greece In the world war; Venizelos at the peace conference; Greece against the Integrity of the Ottoman empire.”
“Aside from its strictly biographical features, this volume is a contribution to the recent history of the Balkans, as well as to that of the peace conference at Paris.”
“Much of this biography is based on the author’s personal acquaintance with his subject. As a college teacher in the Near East he has, moreover, an intimate knowledge of the entire political situation that precipitated the second Balkan war, that kept Greece neutral in 1915 and 1916, and that dictated the policy of Venizelos at the peace conference.”
