"An authoritative one-volume social and political history of modern Greece covering the period from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day"--
"Modern Greece provides an updated and enhanced edition of a classic survey of Greek history since the beginning of the 19th century. Giving equal weighting to social, political and diplomatic aspects, it offers detailed coverage of the formation of the Greek nation state, the global Greek diaspora, the country's relationships with Europe and the United States and a range of other topics, including women, rural areas, nationalism and the Civil War. Gallant draws on elements of anthropology, archaeology, sociology and politics to weave together a nuanced and highly readable narrative. Fresh material and new pedagogical features have been added throughout, most notably:- Two new chapters on 19th-century nationalism and 'Boom to Bust in the Age of Globalization, 1989-2013' - Greater discussion of the late Ottoman context, Greeks outside of Greece and the international background to the Greek state formation - Revisions to take account of recent scholarship, especially that published in Greece itself - Brand new timelines, maps, illustrations, charts, figures and primary source boxes - An updated further reading section and bibliography. Modern Greece is a crucial text for anyone looking to understand the complex history of this now troubled nation and its place in the Balkans, Europe and the modern globalized world"--
