Book Description:

This book provides a concise, illustrated introduction to the history of modern Greece, from the first stirrings of the national movement in the late eighteenth century to the present day. Published initially in 1992, it now appears in a revised and extended second edition to take account of recent developments.

Review:

"Readers who go no further than this concise history will have at their disposal the basic knowledge needed to understand Greece and what made it what it is today." Times Literary Supplement

"Deftly written and carefully researched, supplemented with tables, short biographies, as well as a listing of the royal houses of Greece, A Concise History of Greece is an excellent and scholarly survey of the modern growth of the nation which is a strongly recommended addition to academic World History collections in general, and Hellenic History supplemental reading lists in particular." Library Bookwatch

"This 2002 edition will be even more welcome to teachers, as it brings Greece up to 2000 and the 17 November terrorist group, the conflict over religion on identify cards and minority rights, and the Macedonian crisis.... I will have my students buy and use this edition.... the book is a vigorous, well-written, somewhat opinionated and occasionally humorous view of Greek history since 1770, remarkable in the amount of information and context it provides." Bryn Mawr Classical Review
