Brigands with a cause: brigandage and irredentism in modern Greece, 1821-1912
Although some saw Greek brigands as no more than hardened criminals, to others they were veritable national heroes and avengers of social injustice. The book examines brigandage and irredentism in Greece since the War of Independence, tracing the intimate links between the two, their impact on Greek politics and statecraft, and their influence on modern Greek identity and nationalism.
