The Mediterranean in Politics

Excerpt

The people without whom this book would never have been written are all those to whom it is dedicated, but first among them is the Rockefeller Foundation, which financed and advised me throughout two long journeys round the Mediterranean. I have also to thank the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London for releasing me for fifteen months from my post in its Information Department, and the Centre d'Étude de Politique Étrangère in Paris for introducing me to Monsieur Robert Montagne, without whose encouragement and help I could not have seen and done what I did in the French territories which I visited.

The first journey was from Morocco to Syria, mostly by land and by bus, or by that cheap and universal means of travel in those parts--the hired seat in an Arab car. The second was by more hackneyed ways--to Italy, Albania, Greece, and Turkey--and after travelling through these different countries and régimes, I know that my remaining thanks are due to the fate that cast my lot in a democracy, and so enabled me to think what I like and say what I think.
