Overview

The age of nationalism in the eastern Mediterranean world began with the Greek revolt against Turkish rule in the 1820s. This book explores the power struggles which followed, focusing in particular on Britain's role in the expansion of Greece as an independent nation-state. The book traces events from these nineteenth-century origins right up to the travails of British colonial rule in Cyprus and its ending in 1960.
