Description

This is an impeccably written and carefully researched study by a prominent political scientist. Harry Psomiades focuses on the most critical period (1921-23) that has left a permanent mark on the fortunes of 20th century Greece and Turkey.

Two powerful personalities dominate the narrative: Eleftherios Venizelos and Fridtjof Nansen. The former was a prominent statesman who modernized his country and managed through carefully crafted regional alliances and insightful decisions to double Greece’s territory during the Balkan Wars and World War I.

The latter was a dashing Norwegian adventurer and explorer and Nobel Prize winner, who remains a central figure in international humanitarian work through his associations with the League of Nations and the International Red Cross.
