Michael Llewellyn-Smith sets the Greek occupation of Smyrna and the war in Anatolia against the background of Greece's Great Idea and of great power rivalries in the Near East.

This narrative text presents a comprehensive account of the disaster which has shaped the politics and society of modern Greece. -- Provided by Publisher

Olympics in Athens 1896 : the invention of the modern olympic games by Michael Llewellyn Smith( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, a contribution to the modern history of Greece, weaves together three strands in the revival of the Olympic games: the nineteenth-century explosion of sport in Britain and the US, France, Germany and other European countries, which created the conditions for international competition; the social and economic progress of the young Greek state which made Athens a plausible candidate as host of the Games; and the genius of the idealist Baron Pierre de Coubertin in yoking together amateur sport and internationalism in a new institution with rich symbolic power." "The story moves from Athens to the Rugby School of Dr. Arnold and Tom Brown; Much Wenlock in Shropshire, home of an Olympic experiment which inspired Coubertin; Paris of the Second Empire; Princeton University in the United States; Olympia in the Peloponnese where extensive German excavations revealed the site of the ancient Olympics; and back to Athens for the climax of the Games. Besides Coubertin, the cast of characters includes the great German classicist Ernst Curtius who revealed Olympia to the world, the best-selling Greek novelist Dimitrios Vikelas who became the first President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Crown Prince Constantine who made the Games happen and whose career ended in tragedy, and the young farmer Spyros Louis who won the newly invented Marathon race."--BOOK JACKET
Scholars, travels, archives : Greek history and culture through the British School at Athens : proceedings of a conference held at the National Hellenic Research Foundation, Athens, 6-7 October 2006( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British School at Athens is renowned for its discoveries in Bronze Age and Classical archaeology. This book reveals for the first time that in parallel with this story of archaeology and the classics, another theme runs persistently through the history of the School from its foundation in 1886. This is the contribution of British scholars to the study of Byzantine and modern Greek culture, art and architecture, anthropology, geography, folklore, history and language. Richly illustrated with material from the School's photographic archive, the book sets out the achievements of scholars such as R.M. Dawkins, F.W. Hasluck and A.J.B. Wace. Others whose achievements are assessed include the great Scottish historian George Finlay and the topographer Colonel Leake. The book explores also the rich holdings in Byzantine church art held in the School's Byzantine Research Fund Archive. Contributors include Metropolitan Kallistos (on Mount Athos), distinguished professors from British universities, and scholars from the National Hellenic Research Foundation." "The School's mission was and is to further the study of Greece in all its aspects. This book shows how scholars took advantage of this flexibility. Contributions explore the connection between the School's different disciplines, in particular between archaeology and anthropology. The nature of the School community itself is examined, as is the School's involvement in the First World War. The impact on scholars raised in the classical tradition of Greece's landscape and living culture is a pervasive theme." "This book is a proceedings of a conference held at The National Hellenic Research Foundation, Athens, in October 2006"--Jacket
