(H/B) VENIZELOS
THE MAKING OF A GREEK STATEMAN, 1864-1914
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0123

Eleftherios Venizelos (1864-1936) was the outstanding Greek statesman of the first half of the twentieth century. Michael Llewellyn-Smith traces his early years, political apprenticeship in Crete, and energetic role in that island's emancipation from both Ottoman rule and the arbitrary rule of Prince George of Greece. Summoned to Athens in 1910 by a cabal of officers, Venizelos mastered the Greek political scene, sent the military back to barracks, and led the country through a glorious period of constitutional and political reform, ending...

(H/B) VINTAGE HUMOUR
THE ISLAMIC WINE POETRY OF ABU NUWAS
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0124

Abu Nuwas, the pre-eminent bacchic bard of the classical Arabic canon, was loved and reviled in equal measure for his lyrical celebration of Abbasid Baghdad's dissolute nightlife, his cutting satires of religion and the clergy, and the extraordinary range and virtuosity of his literary talent. 'Vintage Humour' contains approximately 120 translations, each replicating the monorhyme scheme of the originals, with commentary where appropriate, a brief history of the poet's life and times, and a glossary of the key themes, motifs, and running j...

(H/B) FOR THE MOTHERLAND! FOR STALIN!
A RED ARMY OFFICER'S MEMOIR OF THE EASTERN FRONT
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0113

For the Motherland! is an absorbingly frank portrait of a Red Army officer's hellish yet heroic experience on the Eastern Front, and of the wide gap between ideology and reality in Stalinist Russia. Determined and resourceful, Boris Bogachev enlisted as soon as he turned seventeen. Life in the Red Army was harsh, with food shortages, inadequate equipment and fear - of the well-armed and formidably well trained Wehrmacht, but also of the trigger-happy NKVD political commissars at his back. Bogachev fought in many campaigns. He was wounded t...

(P/B) THE HUNGARIANS
A THOUSAND YEARS OF VICTORY IN DEFEAT
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0028

This is a comprehensive history of a legendarily proud and passionate but lonely people. Much of Europe once knew them as 'child-devouring cannibals' and 'bloodthirsty Huns', but it was not long before the Hungarians became steadfast defenders of Christendom and fought heroic freedom struggles against the Tartars, the Turks and, among others, the Russians. Paul Lendvai tells how, despite a string of catastrophes and their linguistic and cultural isolation, the Hungarians have survived as a nation-state for more than 1,000 years. He traces ...

(P/B) THE STRUGGLE FOR GREECE, 1941-1949
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0118

As commander of the Allied Military Mission to the Greek guerrillas in Greece in 1943-4, C. M. Woodhouse had to hold an uneasy balance between the communist and government sides. The struggle for Greece unfolded against a background of conflicting communist doctrine, shifting foreign alliances, territorial disputes and personality differences. The first round began in 1941 with the German occupation of Greece when the National Liberation Front attempted to regain control of the country and overthrow the monarchy. In the second round, the c...

(P/B) THE YOUNG TURKS
THE COMMITTEE OF UNION AND PROGRESS IN TURKISH POLITICS 1908-14
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0080

First published in 1969, this book has become the definitive study of the 'Young Turks', also known as the Committee of Union and Progress. Counting Turkish army officers as its members, the Young Turks sought to reform the Ottoman Empire by provoking a constitutional revolution against Sultan Abdul Hamid II. Feroz Ahmad describes these events and the ensuing counterrevolution of 1909, including a discussion of the 'Group of Saviour officers' who were determined to destroy the Young Turks. The Ottoman Empire was routed by the Balkan coalit...

(P/B) THE IMPOSSIBLE REVOLUTION
MAKING SENSE OF THE SYRIAN TRAGEDY
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0122

Yassin al-Haj Saleh is a leftist dissident who spent sixteen years as a political prisoner and now lives in exile. He describes with precision and fervor the events that led to Syria's 2011 uprising, the metamorphosis of the popular revolution into a regional war, and the 'three monsters' Saleh sees 'treading on Syria's corpse': the Assad regime and its allies, ISIS and other jihadists, and Russia and the US. Where conventional wisdom has it that Assad's army is now battling religious fanatics for control of the country, Saleh argues that ...

(P/B) BRITAIN, GREECE AND THE COLONELS 1967-74
BETWEEN PRAGMATISM AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0121

The long history of Anglo-Greek relations has deservedly attracted much attention. One of its most controversial - yet least explored - phases was that spanning the Greek Colonels' seven-year military junta, from 1967-74. Drawing on a corpus of diverse, original and largely primary material, Maragkou provides a comprehensive analysis of British policy towards Greece during this tumultuous era. Not only does she contribute to the historiography of Anglo-Greek relations, but her book also serves as a case study of British foreign policy with...

(H/B) HISTORY'S SPOILED CHILDREN
THE FORMATION OF THE MODERN GREEK STATE (BY KOSTAS KOSTIS)
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0115

History's Spoiled Children is the story of a small Ottoman province and its transformation into a modern European state. In some respects, the challenges to the formation of the Greek state could be likened to those encountered by the Western world in its efforts to impose its politico-cultural model on societies foreign to it. Though the Greeks of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were Christians whereas the societies subject to Western experimentation today are Muslim, the political venture known as modernisation has treated both as...

(Η/Β) THE PANDEMIC CENTURY
ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF PANIC, HYSTERIA, AND HUBRIS
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0120

Ever since the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic, scientists have dreamed of preventing catastrophic outbreaks of infectious disease. Yet, despite a century of medical progress, viral and bacterial disasters continue to take us by surprise, inciting panic and dominating news cycles. From pneumonic plague in LA and 'parrot fever' in Argentina to the more recent AIDS, SARS and Ebola epidemics, the last 100 years have been marked by a succession of unanticipated outbreaks and scares. Like man-eating sharks, predatory pathogens are always presen...

(P/B) FORTRESS EUROPE
INSIDE THE WAR AGAINST IMMIGRATION
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0110

When the Berlin Wall crumbled in 1989, a euphoric continent hailed the advent of a new 'borderless' Europe in which such barriers would become obsolete. More than twenty-five years later, in the midst of the continent's worst refugee crisis since World War II, European governments have enacted the most sustained and far-reaching border enforcement programme in history. Detention and deportation, physical and bureaucratic barriers, naval patrols and satellite technologies: all these have been part of Europe's undeclared 'war' against undocu...

(P/B) CRISIS IN GREECE
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0114

Few countries experienced the period of turbulence surrounding the global financial crisis as intensely as Greece. The country topped the global news agenda as images of mass protests in Athens jostled for space with reports of torturous negotiations between political leaders struggling to agree support packages. Dramatic headlines proclaimed not only Greek bankruptcy and a possible exit from the euro, but the collapse of the single currency itself. This book offers a comprehensive and authoritative account of the lengthy crisis that beset...

(H/B) THE BACK CHANNEL
AMERICAN DIPLOMACY IN A DISORDERED WORLD
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0119

Over the course of more than three decades as an American diplomat, William J. Burns played a central role in the most consequential diplomatic episodes of his time-from the bloodless end of the Cold War to the collapse of relations with Putin's Russia, from post-9/11 tumult in the Middle East to the secret nuclear talks with Iran. Burns draws on a treasure trove of newly declassified cables and memos to offer rare insight into US diplomacy in action. He illuminates the back channels of his profession, and its value in a world that resembl...

(P/B) HUNGER AND FURY
THE CRISIS OF DEMOCRACY IN THE BALKANS
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0116

Less than two decades after the Yugoslav Wars ended, the edifice of parliamentary government in the Western Balkans is crumbling. This collapse sets into sharp relief the unreformed authoritarian tendencies of the region's entrenched elites, many of whom have held power since the early 1990s, and the hollowness of the West's 'democratisation' agenda. There is a widely held assumption that institutional collapse will precipitate a new bout of ethnic conflict, but Mujanovi? argues instead that the Balkans are on the cusp of a historic socio-...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0111

As millions of people seek passage to Europe in order to escape conflict, repression, poverty and natural catastrophe, their movements are enabled and encouraged by ruthless professional criminal networks that earn billions of pounds from this insidious new trade. Migrant, Refugee, Smuggler, Saviour investigates one of the most under-examined aspects of the great migration crisis of our time to discover who profits from it. The human suffering that results extends well beyond the Mediterranean: the smugglers' routes cross the Sahara, penet...

Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0098

This book sets out the background to Greece's current political and economic crisis, examining its three decades of stopstart reforms and their political and institutional consequences. Ever since Greece's 1974 transition to democracy there has been constant talk of reforms.

Some reforms have come to fruition (creation of the NHS, Eurozone entry, banking liberalisation, some privatisa...

(P/B) THE ARAB REVOLUTION
TEN LESSONS FROM THE DEMOCRATIC UPRISING
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0100

The democratic uprising throughout the Arab world is proving how wrong we were to accept either dictatorship or Islamism as the only political alternatives. Lessons are already being learnt from this grassroots process, even while it is in the making. Above all, when it comes to freedom and justice, there is definitely no Arab exceptionalism. Social networks have been crucial in empowering a leaderless movement, where the generational factor is striking. The Facebook-savvy globalised youngsters from the urban middle class are key, but it ...

NATIONALISM IN GREECE AND TURKEY

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0078

Tormented by History is the first comparative study of nationalism in Greece and Turkey. Grounded in an extensive critical review of the popular and scholarly historiography and literature on Greek and Turkish nationalisms, it traces the emergence and development of the Greek and Turkish nationalist projects over the past two hundred years, challenging the received wisdom about the inevitability of the rise of a 'Greek' and a 'Turkish' nation. Acknowledging the complexity of the relationship between the two nationalisms, Ozkirimli and Sofo...

(P/B) IONIAN VISION
GREECE IN ASIA MINOR, 1919-22
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0097

Michael Llewellyn-Smith sets the Greek occupation of Smyrna and the war in Anatolia against the background of Greece's 'Great Idea' and of great power rivalries in the Near East. He traces the origins of the Greek statesman Eleftherios Venizelos's 'Ionian Vision' to his joint conception with David Lloyd George of an Anglo-Greek entente in the Eastern Mediterranean. This narrative text presents a comprehensive account of the disaster which has shaped the politics and society of modern Greece. (From the publisher)...
