"The years since the military junta seized power in Greece in April 1967 have witnessed a surprising upsurge of interest in present day Greece. But in the barrage of propaganda that has ensued, the underlying realities of life under military rule have been largely obscured. Much of the comment from all sides has been sensational, and seldom based on a first-hand experience of life in Greece today.
"Now, however, the anonymous author of Inside the Colonels' Greece has filled an important gap in the literature available about his troubled country. For the first time an attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive, considered, and objective account of the many fundamental changes that have been and are being wrought by the colonels in almost all areas of Greek life. The author is no foreign observer or emigre, but a Greek who has lived in Greece since the coup, and his book provides the essential background to the drama that is currently being played out in Greece. It is a profound and well documented analysis of internal developments in a country closely tied to the West, and one which is occupying an increasingly important place in the military strategy of the Western alliance.
"Mr. Clogg's introduction summarises the events that have taken place in Greece since the book was first published"
