Greek Urban Warriors, Resistance & Terrorism 1967 - 2014

By Kiesling, John Brady

Athens: Lycabettus Press (New - will be sent to you direct from the publisher in Greece) U.S. diplomat John Brady Kiesling became a public figure in 2003 with his resignation letter to Colin Powell protesting the folly of U.S. Administration policy in Iraq. With a new MA in ancient history and archaeology at U.C. Berkeley, he joined the State Department in 1983. After service in Tel Aviv, Casablanca, Athens, Yerevan, and Washington, his final assignment was as chief of the Political Section at U.S. Embassy Athens from 2000-2003. He and his colleagues were watching closely when 17 November, the notorious terrorist group that murdered twenty-three people, including five of his U.S. mission colleagues, was rounded up in 2002. This book was begun in 2007 as a short handbook on Greek terrorism based on official accounts. It turned into a multi-year research project, an attempt to disentangle the lies and wishful thinking of Greek urban guerrillas and the people pursuing them. Fluent in ancient and modern Greek, Kiesling watched the 17N appeals trial, interviewed key participants, waded through masses of archival material, and used computer software and painstaking deduction to reconstruct the secret history of the Greek armed revolutionary movement.. 1st Greek Edition. Softcover. New Book from Greece.

Petros Spathis

By Manolis [Aligizakis, Manolis]

Surrey BC: Libros Libertad, 2009. " Greece, the birthplace of democracy, is in one of its darkest periods. A right wing government known as the Regime of Colonels is terrorizing the Greek populace. Those who dissent from government policy or action go to prison or simply disappear. Life has been good to Petros Spathis: he has just finished his BA in Economics from the University of Athens with the highest marks in his class, and he is offered a professorship on the condition that he acquire a Master’s degree from a North American university. He is also handsome and charming and catches the hearts of many women, including an Italian Canadian girl, Samantha, and a Greek beauty, Madga. Despite a job offer by the University of British Columbia and Samantha’s pleading that he stay in Canada after receiving his MBA, he goes back to serve his home country. However, being an idealist, Spathis is compelled to help his students in their struggle for freedom of speech and speaks his mind about what the government should do in front of the formidable school trustee, Colonel Prodromos Alvarezos. He is dragged from his office by police and imprisoned. Petros Spathis's close friend, Colonel Stathis Vikas, uses all his power to pressure the government to release Spathis; his students stage demonstrations for his freedom, and Samantha exerts her Canadian influence to rescue him. Will Spathis be freed? Or will he be buried in an unmarked grave by the junta?". 1st Can Ed. Soft Cover. New Book from Publisher.
