Abstract:

Note sur la 4e de couverture: The suspension of ordinary liberties and the resulting political and cultural suffocation are all too familiar to the Greek people, for since the revolution of 1821 they have seldom been able to create the conditions for a stable parliamentary democracy. Strategically Greece is a gateway between Europe and Asia, through which has marched a succession of invading armies. And politically the frequent interventions of the monarchy and the constant juggling of parties and personalities have engendered an atmosphere of mistrust in which dictatorship can be imposed by the army as an alternative to Communism or instability-and even as a guarantee of firm government. In this Penguin Special a Greek lawyer now studying in Paris presents an anatomy of the current Greek crisis, and relates it to an unhappy history of intervention and repression. Constantine Tsoukala's moving book portrays, in historical perspective, the full anguish of contemporary Greece.
