Stirring the Greek Nation: Political Culture, Irredentism and Anti-Americanism in Post-war Greece, 1945-1967
This work examines the background to Greek nationalist politics and its effects on public opinion towards international events and territorial claims, from the end of the Second World War to the collapse of the constitutional rule in 1967. It explains how intermittent public mobilisation on various foreign policy issues created a 'political culture' that combined elements of nationalism, religion, race and stereotypes about the national Self and the Other. Drawing on a huge variety of sources including the Greek press, this book provides a fascinating account of Greek political culture and national self image at a crucial time in the country's political development.
