The Island Everbody Wanted : An Illustrated History of Cyprus

By Christofides, Marina

Nicosia: Kailas Press, 2007. A fun journey through the colourful history of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, one of the oldest civilisations of the world.

From the hut dwellers of Chirokitia, to ancient Greek city-kingdoms, sunken trading ships, exquisite Roman mosaics, royal weddings and brutal wars, the events that shaped the island are vividly brought to life. The easy to read text teaches interesting facts, such as that Cyprus was once at the bottom of the sea; that it gave its name to copper; that Mark Anthony gave the island to Cleopatra as a token of his love; that for three hundred years, its rulers all spoke French; and that it was the first country in the world from where malaria was eradicated. Kids will enjoy trying to spot the ancient figurine hidden on almost every page as it travels through time.. First Edition. Soft Cover. New Book from Publisher. Illus. by Eleni Lambrou.

Embracing Cyprus: The Path to Unity in the New Europe

By Green, Pauline;Collins, Ray

London: I.b.tauris, 2003. When Archbishop Makarios was toppled as President of Cyprus in a 1974 coup, and Turkish forces invaded the island, few saw Cyprus as part of the incipient drive to create a new Europe. Yet, as the authors reveal here, behind the rhetoric of the politicians there is a growing view among Greek and Turkish Cypriots that the solution to Cyprus’s problems lies within the gift of Europe. They argue that the intercommunal stand-off can only be diffused and ultimately resolved by firmly embedding Cyprus within Europe. 150p.index. 1st UK Edition. Hardcover. New/New.
