Katsehamos and the Great Idea

By Prineas, Peter

Darlington NSW: Plateia, 2006. [Will be shipped direct from the publisher in Australia] A true story of Greeks and Australians in the early 20th. century " The mass migrations that followed the early 20th. century turmoil in the Balkans laid the foundations for that great Australian institution the Greek country cafe . Peter Prineas' s spirited account of migrants building small empires of cafes and cinemas is also tinged with the loneliness and isolation they experienced in xenophobic bush towns." (Tony Maniaty - Weekend Australian) " I found the book fascinating because it contains the dreams and aspirations of all Greek immigrants of my father's generation, a world that has faded from the collective Greek consciousness as much as the Great Idea. Most of all, however, I was struck by the literary quality of the book, which is far superior to almost all works of this type that I have read."(Nicholas Gage, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and author of 'Eleni'.) 242p.

The Macedonian Conflict : Ethnic Nationalism in a Transnational World

By Danforth,Loring

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1995. Greeks and Macedonians are presently engaged in an often heated dispute involving competing claims to a single identity. Each group asserts that they, and they alone, have the right to identify themselves as Macedonians. The Greek government denies the existence of a Macedonian nation and insists that all Macedonians are Greeks, while Macedonians vehemently assert their existence as a unique people. Here Loring Danforth examines the Macedonian conflict in light of contemporary theoretical work on ethnic nationalism, the construction of national identities and cultures, the invention of tradition, and the role of the state in the process of building a nation. The conflict is set in the broader context of Balkan history and in the more narrow context of the recent disintegration of Yugoslavia. Danforth focuses on the transnational dimension of the global cultural war taking place between Greeks and Macedonians both in the Balkans and in the diaspora. He analyzes two issues in particular: the struggle for human rights of the Macedonian minority in northern Greece and the campaign for international recognition of the newly independent Republic of Macedonia. The book concludes with a detailed analysis of the construction of identity at an individual level among immigrants from northern Greece who have settled in Australia, where multiculturalism is an official policy. People from the same villages, members of the same families, living in the northern suburbs of Melbourne have adopted different national identities 273p. illus.bibliography.index. Reprint..
