Located on the southern-most tip of the Balkan peninsula in Europe's southeast, Greece is a small country of some 11 million people. And while few people have a longer history than the Greeks, Modern Greece is a fairly young country, having been founded in 1830. Greece has come a long way since then; it has been a client state, first of Britain and then of the United States, for much of its modern existence but now it has secured an equal place at the top tables of NATO and the EU.

The Historical Dictionary of Modern Greece explores the modern history of this country through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions, as well as on significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects.

About the Author:

Dimitris Keridis is associate professor of international politics at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece. He served as the founding director of the Kokkalis Program on Southeastern and East-Central Europe at Harvard University and as the Karamanlis Associate Professor in Hellenic and Southeast European Studies at the Fletcher School, Tufts University.

From Booklist:

This volume is the seventy-first in Scarecrow’s Historical Dictionaries of Europe series, which began publishing in 1993. Most years have seen three to five new dictionaries in the series, but seven titles were issued in 2009. Covering the history of Greece beginning with the events leading up to its founding as a modern nation in 1830, the volume contains entries for significant persons (kings, presidents, soldiers, politicians, writers, artists) as well as for major historical events such as the Wars of Independence (1821–1828), the two world wars, and the junta that established a military dictatorship in 1967. Also represented are places, institutions, and aspects of culture, society, and the economy. There is no separate entry for the 2004 Olympic Games, although they are discussed briefly in the more general Olympic Games entry. Preceding the A–Z entries are a list of acronyms and abbreviations, three hard-to-read maps, a chronology, and an introduction. Following the entries are appendixes listing political rulers since 1828; national election results from 1946 to 2007; data on the geography, population, and more; and a few economic charts. An extensive bibliography concludes the volume. This work is for the student or researcher needing a quick reference to a particular modern Greek person, event, or place. It is recommended for collections that are acquiring the entire Historical Dictionaries of Europe series or that have an emphasis in the country or area. --Jerry Carbone
