The Balkans A History of Bulgaria-Serbia-Greece-Rumania-Turkey D.G. Hogarth The authors of this volume have t worked in conjunction. Widely separated, engaged on other duties, and pressed for time, we have had opportunity for interchange of views. Each must be held responsible, therefore, for his own section alone. If there be any discrepancies in our writings (it is t unlikely in so disputed a field of history) we can only regret an unfortunate result of the circumstances. Owing to rapid change in the relations of our country to the several Balkan peoples, the tone of a section written earlier may differ from that of ather written later. It may be well to state that the sections on Serbia and Bulgaria were finished before the decisive Balkan developments of the past two months. Those on Greece and Rumania represent only a little later stage of the evolution. That on Turkey, compiled between one mission abroad and ather, was the latest to be finished.
