New book

A new book on Greek politics after the Civil War has come out in Greek.
It is a very well-written and thoroughly researched endeavour to analyse the major actors and events that shaped postwar Greece.

The book, which is written by an established Greek researcher (Sotiris Rizas) who has published extensively on a variety of topics including Britain, the US and Cyprus, is entitled 'Greek politics after the Civil War: parliamentarism and dictatorship' (translation mine), and thus also covers the period of the Greek junta, 1967-1974.

More info (in Greek) here.
