9781330473696: Marvellous Mesopotamia the World's Wonderland (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Marvellous Mesopotamia the World's Wonderland

Immediately after the outbreak of war I ventured to draw attention, by means of lectures, articles, and pamphlets, to the importance of Mesopotamia and the significance of Germany's Baghdad Railway schemes. The following pages contain the substance of my lectures, with some additional information more recently available. The different aspects of the country, its relation to current events and present-day problems, are here presented in language and style simple enough, I hope, to convey to the rising generation the impression that Mesopotamia must not be overlooked, since its settlement and development within the next fifty years will influence the whole world's future.

The American Continent will probably be affected as much as the Eastern hemisphere when the bulk of Europe's food supplies, cotton, and oil reach the Mediterranean by the new railways' waterways, and pipe lines from Mesopotamia and the East. The most important world-problems as well as the most fascinating developments of human existence will be associated for a century and more with the reconstruction of the Near East.
