Modern Greece: a history since 1821

modern greeceThis book provides an in-depth narrative history of modern Greece by two leading authorities. The authors bring together their knowledge of primary Greek sources and their first hand experience of Greek culture to explore the political, economic, social, and cultural history of this fascinating country from ’within’. “Modern Greece” traces the history of Greece from the creation of the Greek state in 1821 and early conflicts over former Ottoman lands, through to Greece’s instability between the wars, and as a battleground between the Allied forces and Axis powers in WWII. The authors pay particular attention to contemporary events, including the return to democracy in 1974 and the profound economic and social changes which have arisen as a result of EU membership. Incorporating the latest Greek scholarship on the subject, this book provides a pioneering survey and brings the story of modern Greece up-to-date.
