Anthone C. Colovas is a retired professor of sociology and social science at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio. He holds a doctorate in educational sociology from Wayne State University in Detroit. He is the son of immigrant parents from Greece and has visited Greece numerous times. A Quick History of Modern Greece is a book designed to tell the story of modern Greece. This is the Greece that emerged following the Greek War of Independence, which began in 1821. The story of ancient Greece is well-known. That of modern Greece is not. The book’s first chapter summarizes some of the great achievements of the ancient Greeks, tells about the hundreds of years during which Greek lands were part of the Byzantine Empire, and describes the several centuries when the Ottoman Empire controlled Greek territories. The remaining chapters chronicle the Greek War of Independence and the many political, economic, and military challenges faced by the fledgling Greek nation as it struggled to survive and grow. It is a story marked by the courage, determination, and sacrifices of the Greek people. It is a story of which all Greeks can be proud.
