The Edinburgh History of the Greeks, 20th and Early 21st Centuries – Global Perspectives

Paperback, Antonis Liakos & Nicholas Doumanis

A new and innovative account of modern Greek history covering the last 100 years

  • Draws on recent research on popular culture, social memory and other areas of innovative analysis that have not yet been incorporated into any histories of modern Greece
  • Details the full significance of the changing experiences of women throughout the century
  • Incorporates the history of Cyprus and the experiences of Greek communities in the diaspora, whose histories were indelibly tied with the Greek nation

This volume deals with a tumultuous yet transformative era in Greek history. During the twentieth century, most Greeks abandoned the countryside for the cities or the expanding global diaspora. Greek and Cypriot societies became urbanised, secularised and more ‘western’. Since the Balkan Wars they have also lurched from crisis to crisis, having experienced two destructive war decades (1912–1922 and 1940–1949), the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 and the economic crises of the 2010s.
