Nationalism and the Politics of Place
by Robert Shannan Peckham

Published by I. B. Tauris Publishers, London, New York - 2001


I was initially interested in this book because of the section in Chapter 2 --  2.4 The Reorganization of the Land (after the War for Independence).  I was specifically interested in how the land was distributed to the citizens after the war.  Below is an excerpt from that section.

"During the early years of the Greek Revolution, confiscated Turkish holdings were claimed by the Greek government as "national estates" to be exploited as collateral for foreign loans, although no coherent policy was formulated to justify this appropriation of land.  It was not until much later in the nineteenth century - not, in fact, until after 1871 - that the Greek government took some effective measure in distributing the national estates.  According to one British writer in 1854 "the cultivators of the soil" in Greece were "retained in a state of medieval barbarism".  The lack of detailed demographic data and information about land registration made attempts to administer it difficult.  Although the principle had been laid down by Count Ioannis Capodistrias, Greece's first president (1828-1831), that all those who served in the war should be given land vacated by the Ottoman Turks, only approximately a sixth of Greeks were landowners, the rest being tenants." . . . .
