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.

Greece since 1945 is the only history of Greece in English to be devoted to the period 1945-2000, and the first book to analyse the important developments since 1990. Taking an analytical as well as chronological approach, the book is accessible to readers with no previous knowledge of the subject. Frequent comparisons are made with countries of western Europe (especially Italy, Portugal and Spain) and with other Balkan countries, in order to show how Greece converged with Western Europe and in what ways it remained unique or characteristically Balkan. Areas examined in the book include: * the political system* economic development* social changes* foreign relations Clearly and forcefully written, and full of incisive judgements, Greece Since 1945 provides a stimulating and lively introduction to the recent history of this small but much-discussed country. David H. Close is a Senior Lecturer in History at Flinders University of South Australia and has edited and contributed to Revolution: A History of the Idea (1985) and The Greek Civil War: Studies in Polarization (1993), and written The Origins of the Greek Civil War (1995).About the Author:
