FROM THE DUST JACKET
“On the night of September 6-7, 1955, the Greek community of Istanbul was violently struck throughout the expanse of Turkey’s most important metropolis. Within hours, businesses, homes, and even the churches of the Greeks were in ruins, with the British press calculating the damage of £100 million. It was the beginning of the end for the ethnic descendants of the city’s founders, who had settled this eastern tip of Europe two and a half millennia earlier.
This vicious and unprovoked attack quickly became entangled in the Cold War politics of the time, and the truth of it was just as quickly suppressed. Now, on the fiftieth anniversary of the mass destruction, Speros Vryonis has painstakingly reconstructed the events of that night in his magisterial work, The Mechanism of Catastrophe: The Turkish Pogrom of September 6-7, 1955, and the Destruction of the Greek Community of Istanbul.
This monumental study of a decisive moment in modern Turkish and Greek history is the first work of its depth ad range to be published on this critical subject in any language. It has been lauded even before publication as “a magnum opus,” “original and significant,” and a “brilliant book.” Surely, it will soon take its place as the definitive study of the violence it so meticulously describes and examines.
The volume includes an extensive section with remarkable photographs of the attacks by Demetrios Kaloumenos. This extraordinary visual documentation lends additional weights to the archival testimony presented y Speros Vryonis, and to his historical analysis of the pogrom, its aftermath, and its broader consequences.”
