A concise history of Greece by Richard Clogg( Book )

61 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 2,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 until the present day. Greece in 1830 became the first east European country to win full independence, and in 1981 became the first to achieve membership of the European Community. Not only is her heritage of Orthodox Christianity and of Ottoman rule distinctive, but great historical movements such as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment and the French and Industrial Revolutions which so profoundly influenced western Europe have largely passed her by. This has resulted in a pattern of historical development and a society markedly different from that of her west European partners. Moreover, for much of the 150 years of her existence as an independent state there have been more Greeks outside than within the borders of Greece, and large communities of Greek descent are to be found in the United States, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere. These factors give a particular interest to the history of a country that is at once Balkan, Mediterranean and European, and in which the burden of the past weighs particularly heavily on the present. Richard Clogg is recognised internationally as a leading authority on the history of modern Greece. This new book is, however, different in concept from anything yet written, including Professor Clogg's own classic A short history of modern Greece, which is here complemented by a wholly new account of the subject aimed at both general and academic readers

Anglo-Greek attitudes : studies in history by Richard Clogg( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays gathered in this book, some previously unpublished, examine aspects of this connection between two countries situated at opposite ends of Europe. Four focus on the period of the Second World War when British influence in Greek affairs was at its greatest. A particular theme is the controversial role of the Special Operations Executive, the agency charged with supporting resistance in occupied Europe, and its often difficult relationship with the Foreign Office on the one hand and its American counterpart, the Office of Strategic Services, on the other. Other essays focus on the development of the academic study of modern Greece in Britain."--Jacket
Bearing gifts to Greeks : humanitarian aid to Greece in the 1940s( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The occupation of Greece during the Second World War brought savage Axis reprisals, the destruction of Greek Jewry, astronomical inflation and famine. International efforts brought a partial lifting of the British blockade that had worsened the food supply problem. Bearing Gifts to Greeks throws new light on a hitherto neglected aspect of Greece's wartime experience. Topics covered include the nature of the famine; the complex diplomacy that led to a relaxation of the blockade; the role of the Greek-American community in mobilising pressure; the part played by Turkey, and later the Swedish Red Cross, in supplying food and medical aid; the Greek Red Cross's role in alerting international public opinion to the gravity of the situation; the role of Quakers in Greek relief; the initial steps of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Agency on liberation in 1944; Yugoslav humanitarian assistance to the Greek left; and the relief activities of the Greek resistance and of the Orthodox Church."--Jacket

The struggle for Greece, 1941-1949 by C. M Woodhouse( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As commander of the Allied Military Mission to the Greek guerrillas in German-occupied Greece, Colonel C.M. Woodhouse held an uneasy balance between the Communists and the government. He was in a prime position to write the history of the Greek civil war, and his account of this turning point in Communist fortunes in Europe has achieved the status of a classic. This new edition of The Struggle for Greece is introduced by Richard Clogg of Oxford University." "The three-round Communist struggle for Greece began in 1941, against a background of conflicting Communist doctrine, shifting foreign alliances, territorial disputes, and key personality differences. During the German occupation of Greece (1941-1944), the National Liberation Front attempted to regain control of the country and overthrow the monarchy. In 1944, when the Communists sought to seize power after the German occupation, they were frustrated by the intervention of British forces. After 1946, the most protracted part of the struggle, U.S. forces replaced the retiring British, the United Nations sent fact-finding missions, and conventional warfare shifted to guerrilla tactics." "Why were the Communists unable to overthrow a succession of feeble Athens governments? Woodhouse portrays a Greek Communist party weakened by internal feuding, divided by dissensions over policy, and overcome by the strength of U.S. forces. Basing his account on privileged access to documents, interviews with prominent survivors, and his own unique experience, he analyzes the characters, ideologies, and events behind one of the longest and most bitter civil wars of modern times. This is the definitive history."--Jacket
