This is an impeccably written and carefully researched study by a promi­nent political scientist. Harry Psomiades focuses on a 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.

Book Description The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center, New York, 2001. Soft cover. Condition: New. Paperback. Pbo. Roy. 8vo. (23 x 16 cm). In English. [x], 160 p., 3 maps. Firdtjof Nansen and the Greek Refugee Crisis, 1922-1924. A study on the politics of international humanitarian intervention and the Greek - Turkish obligatory population exchange agreement. This is an impeccably written and carefully researched study on a most critical period 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 Greek 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 was a central figure in international humanitarian work through his associations with the League of Nations and the International Red Cross. This captivating story, covering Greece's defeat by Turkish forces led by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk during the 1919-1922 Anatolian campaign, raises questions that are of central relevance today: What is the role of international organizations and civil society in helping civilians following periods of war and mass atrocities? Is a compulsory population exchange based on religion or ethnicity a painful but necessary instrument to support the peace after a war? Are we moving toward a United Europe that can sustain multiculturalism, or is the "clash of civilizations" an inevitable element of the future? Is history the product of chance, or is it best explained by the decisions of wise statesmen or the actions and omissions of populist politicians? The reader of this fine volume will be provoked to consider these and many other difficult questions. Seller Inventory # 031730
