SYNOPSIS FROM THE DUST JACKET
The history of Greece during the period of her struggle for independence remains one of the least-known periods in her modern history. This neglect is unfortunate, for the independence period is one of the most interesting and formative epochs in Greek history, and one which has had a significant influence on the subsequent development of Greek society. The study of this period also has a wider relevance in explaining the processes by which Greece became the first of the countries of eastern Europe to cast off the hegemony of a multi-national empire and achieve full independence. Moreover, the origins and development of the Greek national movement have an added claim on the attention of the historian and political scientist, as Greek nationalism is probably the earliest example of a modern nationalist movement in the non-European world.
This book brings together essays by British, Greek and American scholars on various aspects of Greek history during the pre-independence and independence periods. These are documented studies, firmly rooted in the relevant sources, and together they constitute an important contribution to the serious study of Greece, a country whose historical experience has been the subject of much discussion but little understanding in recent years.
