In this second volume of his attractive autobiography, the author, a distinguished British public servant, recalls the years 1914-1924, during which time he served in the eastern Mediterranean, witnessed the rise of Mustapha Kemal, headed the diplomatic mission in the ephemeral Transcaucasian republics, and participated in the establishment of the Palestine Mandate.
