Paperback / softback
Cambridge University Press
UK Publication Date

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 to the present day. It is designed to provide a basic introduction for general and academic readers with little or no prior knowledge of the subject, and supersedes Professor Clogg's Short History of Modern Greece which has become a classic since its initial publication in 1979. This latest account is a wholly new book, conceived afresh for a broad readership, in which the many illustrations with their extensive captions form an important part of the text.

'… an authoritative account … sensitive analysis …'. John Torode, The Independent

'Professor Clogg's slim and lively volume intersperses an authoritative account of the last 200 years of Greek history with a sensitive analysis of the Greek national character. It will be of use to anyone attempting to understand, for example, the historic basis of the row between Athens and its EC partners over recognition of the former Yugoslav state of Macedonia; or the constant friction with Turkey that is deemed by all Turks to be incurable. It also helps to explain the appeal that Andreas Papandreou and his often posturing and always chauvinistic 'socialist' party, Pasok, had for many of his fellow countrymen in the Eighties.' John Torode, The Independent

'As a Byzantine scholar, Professor Clogg is an excellent guide through the labyrinth of modern Greek history. Unlike other writers, he does not interpret events mainly in terms of the ideological struggle, nor does he overdo the importance of individual personalities. He moves the narrative forwards and onwards, yet also supplies detailed biographies and reference tables, neatly set out at the end, for those who require that sort of analysis. And accompanying the text, there is a range of contemporary photographs, all well captioned. Richard Clogg is a thorough historian.' Book of the Week, Arabic Service Programme
