9781848857810: The Metaxas Myth: Dictatorship and Propaganda in Greece (International Library of War Studies)

Why did the propaganda efforts that succeeded so thoroughly in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany fail so drastically in Greece? The Metaxas Myth is the first detailed account of General Ioannis Metaxas's attempts to mimic the fascist models of Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco by portraying himself as the ""savior"" of the Greek nation in an effort to build his power base as dictator. Following the dissolution of parliament in 1936 up to his death in 1941, Metaxas used every media outlet available to promote his great myth: newspapers, periodicals, cinema, theatre and radio. Marina Petrakis analyzes the nature of Metaxas's shortcomings: the errors made and the policies that eventually bred not loyalty, but at best apathy and at worst hostility towards his would-be autocracy.

About the Author:

Marina Petrakis carried out her research at the Department of History, University of Kent at Canterbury.

Review:

'Petrakis has unearthed some fascinating and rare material about theway in which Metaxas sought to bolster support for his quasi-fascist regime through the deployment of relatively sophisticated and modern methods of propaganda ...The book constitutes a pioneering piece of research, based on a wide range of sources.' - Richard Clogg, The Times Literary Supplement; 'Petrakis has produced the first major scholarly work on the propagandaused by the Metaxas regime in Greece, 1936-40. She has written a ground-breaking work that makes a major contribution to both the study of Greek history and the nature of European dictatorship in the twentieth century.' - David Welch, Professor of Modern History, University of Kent
