Originally published in 1964, this volume focuses on the history of England's relations with the Near East from the death of Canning until the day when Disraeli brought back 'peace with honour' from Berlin. The period begins with the British fleet's destruction of Turkish sea-power at Naarino and ends with its protection of the Turkish capital against Russia. The aim is not a study of diplomatic or naval history, but a general narrative in which these speical features are found side by side with a study of Oriental institutions and of Balkan nationalities.
