Book review

Excerpt from Greece: Before the Conference

As one of the oldest survivors of the Philhellenes of the days of Gladstone, I have been requested by several Greek friends to write a preface to the pages which follow. I do so with a mixture of pleasure and of a certain resentment. The resentment is inspired by the feeling that, though the claims of Greeks to remain Greek, to govern themselves, to return to their unity, beginning in times almost prehistoric and maintained through centuries of struggle and oppression, come before the civilised world with higher title-deeds than those of almost any other nationality to-day, it should still be necessary for anyone to say a word in defence of these claims.

In a more real sense than almost any other nation, Greece is the possession, as well as the inspiration, of all mankind.
