I have also striven to make clear the logical sequence and continuity of these events- to outline the steps by which the city gradually obtained a free political life- and to give proper prominence to the remarkable and ever-recurring revolutions in the ethnic make-up of our mixed population,—a population which from the beginning has been composed of many different race-elements, and which has owed its marvelous growth more to immigration than to natural increase.Nisyros Publishers has a proud history of publishing high quality and rare titles.
