The Greek Economy 1940-2004

By Dragoumis, Mark

Athens: Athens News, 2005. "Greece’s economic history reflects the slings and arrows of outrageous fortunate that have bedevilled the country ever since it became independent in 1832. The road to development has been full of pitfalls such as coups, one fully fledged civil war, several Balkan wars, two World Wars, one devastating occupation, one global crisis, and two outright bankruptcies. These have endowed Greeks with a sense of insecurity of varying intensity. This has led to a deep-rooted conservatism in national economic planning and deep-seated protectionism on the part of industry and workers. The result is an inflexibility in the face of changing market demands that has, for many years, prevented liberalisation and reform. Mark Dragoumis has been observing Greek affairs both from inside the government and as a journalist since the 1940s. His informative and compelling account explains economic developments in the light of political ones.". 1st Greek Ed.. Soft Cover. New Book from Greece.

Blood and Tears: Greece 1940-1949: a Story of War and Love

By Papavizas, George Constantine

Washington: American Hellenic Institute Foundation, 2005. "A powerful autobiography set in the turbulent decade of 1940s Greece. Through the eyes of an impressionable and intelligent young man who came of age in a time of world war, foreign occupation, resistance, and civil war, we witness the tragedy and trauma suffered by Greece. While uniquely personal, this is also the story of young Greeks cast unwillingly into the ambivalences and horrors of WWII.The author’s descriptions are vivid and convincing. Against a rigorously researched backdrop of the key historical events, we see youthful idealism being forcibly reconciled to the realities of hunger, brutality, dissension, and death. With a keen eye for detail, and reflecting on the mundane as well as the profound, we watch as Greece patriotically fends off foreign invasion and survives years of harsh occupation, but gullibly and disastrously succumbs to the blandishments of utopians.". 1st US Ed.. Hard Cover. New Book from Publisher/New.
