Greece Since 1945 (Postwar World)by David Close
Synopses & Reviews
The book draws extensively on research on modern Greece in recent decades, and on the many perceptive commentaries on recent events in the Greek press. It adopts both an analytical and chronological approach and shows how Greece has both converged with western Europe and remained distinctively Balkan. David Close writes clearly and forcefully, and presents a lively picture of the Greek political system, economic development, social changes and foreign relations. Aimed at readers coming to the subject for the first time, this is a readable and informative introduction to contemporary Greece.
Book News Annotation:
Close (history, Flinders U. of South Australia) offers a synthetic history of Greece, analyzing events from the close of WWII to the year 2000. Simultaneously told in chronological and thematic form, Close looks at political, economic, social, and diplomatic developments through periods of civil war, American intervention, resultant military dictatorship, and democratization.
