    I.B.Tauris 2012; US$ 14.95

    A generation after his death and still no monument adorns Andreas Papandreou’s grave at the First Cemetery of Athens. This puzzling absence exemplifies the enigma surrounding the man who was arguably the most remarkable, and certainly the most controversial Greek politician of the post-World War II era. Venerated by his admirers and despised by his... more...

  • Mercenaries in the Classical Worldby Stephen English

    Frontline Books 2012; US$ 10.99

    Mercenaries were a significant factor in many of the wars of the Classical world, being employed in large numbers by many states. By far the most famous were Xenophon's 'Ten Thousand', who had to cut their way out of the Persian Empire after the death of their employer and such Greek infantry were for long the most dominant type (even a Spartan king... more...

  • Greek Civil War, Theby David H. Close

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 71.95

    The Greek Civil War (1943--50) was a major conflict in its own right, developing out of the rivalry between communist and conservative partisans for control of Greece as the Axis forces retreated at the end of the Second World War. Spanning the transition from World War to Cold War, it also had major international consequences in keeping Greece (alone... more...

  • Greece since 1945by David H. Close

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 64.95

    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... more...

  • Twilight of the Hellenistic Worldby Mike Roberts; Bob Bennett

    Pen and Sword 2012; US$ 10.99

    This book recounts and analyzes the complex series of conflicts between the Hellenistic Successor states in the generation before the Romans intervened in, and ultimately conquered, the region. This period is rarely treated in any depth, usually warranting little more than a summary as context for a discussion of the Roman conquests. The authors demonstrate... more...

His novel completed and sold, he decided to stay a little longer. Seven idyllic years later,... more...
