Modern Greek Lessons : A Primer in Historical Constructivism

By Faubion, James D

New Jersey: Princeton U.P., 1993. Wide ranging observations on the ways in which Greek society copes with the changes of modern Western society. "Through a blend of lively detail and elegant narration, James Faubion immerses us in the cosmopolitan intellectual life of Athens, a centerless city of multiplicities and fragmentations, a city on the margins of Europe recovering from the repressive rule of a military junta. Drawing inspiration from Athens and its cultural elite, Faubion explores the meaning of modernity, finding it not in the singular character of Western civilization but instead in an increasingly diverse family of practices of reform." 307p. plates. bibliography.index..

Aromata & Chromata, Scents and Colours of Greece; A crash course in Greekness

By Gekas, George

Toronto, 2010. The book is written in English primarily for Diaspora Greeks and Philhellenes. Anyone interested in his or her Greek ancestry, will find in this book a wealth of information, and breathtaking originality in approach and content. Non Greek speaking Diaspora Greeks or those who are not at great ease with the Greek language will undoubtedly benefit the most from this publication. It will answer many outstanding or unarticulated questions about what it means to be of Greek heritage and culture. It underlines all Greek contributions to western civilization and makes every person of Greek ancestry to feel few inches taller. It will bring many Hellenes around the world closer to Hellenism and to their roots. In fact this book demonstrates and makes the Greek and Greek civilization relevant to the western culture today. This will strengthen the spirit of Hellenism in Canadian-born Greeks. The future of philhellenism and Hellenism in Canada may depend on the young generations of Greek-Canadians to whom this book is addressed to. Perhaps Hellenism's greatest hope is the many incarnate Hellenes who like or even have a passion for Greece. After all being Greek is not a matter of nationality or language. Bein Greek is a matter of mentality. It is a matter of an upbringing respectful of Greek culture. 278p.. Soft Cover. New Book from Publisher.

Reading Greek America Studies in the Experience of Greeks in the United States

By Orfanos, Spyros D.[ed]

New York: Pella Publishing Company, 2002. New (Can be ordered on request to be delivered direct from publisher/distributor.) Modern Greek Research Series 11. This collection presents a broad and compelling overview of some of the most important work conducted in the field of Greek American Studies in the last 20 years. It aims at providing the interested reader with the necessary background from which to evaluate past and current developments in the Greek American community. Further, it is intended for use in study groups, colleges and universities. Any serious scholarly examination of ethnic groups, particularly the Greeks in the United States, will benefit from the works in this compilation. The volume is divided into three parts: History and Politics, Society and Culture, and Psychology. One of the unique features of this compilation is the balance provided by the inclusion of psychological studies. Thus, the historical, political and social investigations are fortified with the personal. Psychology takes up where social investigations leave off. Each part combines wide and in-depth analysis. Lastly, the chapters of this edited volume contain an implicit plea for an appreciation of the complexity, the agony and the dreams realized and deferred of the Greeks in the United States. As the popularity of the comic film My Big Fat Greek Wedding threatens to return the community to Dionysian stereotypes, the publication of this edited volume is a corrective step in the Apollonian direction. As the Greek communities make the transition to the 21st century, this book rewards readers with insightful and intimate studies that can provide an important context for further meaningful explorations.
