  • Athens Transformed, 404?262 BCby Phillip Harding

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 140.00

    During the heady, democratic days of the fifth and fourth centuries, the poorer members of Athenian society, the lower two classes of zeugitai and thetes, enjoyed an unprecedented dominance in both domestic and foreign politics. At home, the participatory nature of the constitution required their presence not only in the lawcourts and assembly,... more...

  • Educating across Culturesby William McGrew

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2015; US$ 89.99

    This compelling book chronicles the challenges faced by Anatolia College, whose rich history provides a unique window on the American missionary movement, the Armenian genocides, the Greek-Turkish conflict, and two world wars from the prism of the survival and growth of an American college caught in near-perpetual upheaval. more...

  • Modern Greece: What Everyone Needs to KnowRGby Stathis Kalyvas

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 15.99

    When Greece's economic troubles began to threaten the stability of the European Union in 2010, the nation found itself in the center of a whirlwind of international finger-pointing.

  • Economic Equality and Direct Democracy in Ancient Athensby Larry Patriquin

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 45.00

    This book argues that ancient democracy did not stop at the door of economic democracy, and that ancient Athens has much to tell us about the relationship between political equality and economic equality. Athenian democracy rested on a foundation of general economic equality, which enabled citizens to challenge their exclusion from politics. ... more...

  • Diary of a Disasterby Robin Higham

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    On October 28, 1940, the Italian army under Benito Mussolini invaded Greece. The British had insisted on guaranteeing Greek and Turkish neutrality, despite the fact that Greece was never more than a limited campaign in an unlimited war as far as they were concerned. The British, however, were never quite sure that Greece was not their last foothold... more...

  • The Church of Greece under Axis Occupationby Panteleymon Anastasakis

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 41.99

    Axis forces (Germany, Italy, and Bulgaria) occupied Greece from 1941 to 1944. The unimaginable hardships caused by foreign occupation were compounded by the flight of the government days before enemy forces reached Athens. This national crisis forced the Church of Greece, an institution accustomed to playing a central political and social role during... more...

  • Das neugriechische Schattentheater Karagiozisby Walter Puchner

    Hollitzer Wissenschaftsverlag 2014; US$ 27.99

    Das neugriechische Schattentheater ist der letzte Zeuge einer einst im ganzen östlichen Mittelmeer verbreiteten Spieltätigkeit. Dieses fachlich scheinbar periphere Phänomen führt den Untersuchenden sehr bald schon in zentrale Bereiche von Theaterwissenschaft und Neogräzistik, wobei Walter Puchners Arbeit eine langjährige Lücke schließt, da die griechische... more...

  • Greece since 1945by David H. Close

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 64.95

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... more...
