When 'Abdu'l-Bah? set sail from the Middle East in 1911 and again in 1912 to bring to the West the message of peace found in the teachings of His father, Bah?'u'll?h, His arrival was headline news in towns and cities across Europe and North America.

In an era when the newspaper was the main source of news, 'Abdu'l-Bah? gave interviews in almost every city He visited, granted press conferences and even agreed to have His picture taken. His message of peace, brotherhood and the advent of Bah?'u'll?h excited the interest of thousands and the press promulgated these ideas enthusiastically, exhibiting a genuine interest for the Master both as a religious figure and as a promulgator of progressive ideals.

The Apostle of Peace, compiled by Am?n Egea over a ten-year period, is a fascinating collection of only a few hundred of the over 2,200 press articles written about 'Abdu'l-Bah? during His lifetime that have thus far come to light. This, the second of two volumes, covers the period from 13 December 1912 to the passing of 'Abdu'l-Bah? in November 1921, including the many articles published afterwards.

This volume also details 'Abdu'l-Bah?'s contact in Europe and North America with suffragist organizations, the civil rights movement, Esperantists, the Theosophical Society and with various figures and organizations linked with the spiritualist and esoteric movements.
