The subject of this book is the domestic and foreign policy of Charilaos Trikoupis, the great 19th-century Greek politician. It deals in particular with a basic aspect of his economic development programme: the construction of public works.

The development of Greece is considered in detail through the construction of the rail and road networks, the cutting of the Corinthian canal, and the draining of Lake Kopaïs. All these projects bear the stamp of Trikoupis and have set their seal on the development of the Greek state to the present day.
