Now reissued in a fourth, updated edition, this book provides a concise, illustrated introduction to the modern history of Greece, from the first stirrings of the national movement in the late eighteenth century to the present day. As Greece emerges from a devastating economic crisis, this fourth edition offers analyses of contemporary political, economic and social developments. It includes additional illustrations, together with updated tables and suggestions for further reading. A new concluding chapter considers the trajectory of Greek history over the two hundred years since the beginning of the War of Independence in 1821. Designed to provide a basic introduction, the first edition of this hugely successful Concise History won the Runciman Award for a best book on an Hellenic topic in 1992 and has been translated into thirteen languages, including all the languages of the Balkans.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'… Clogg succinctly pulls together Greece’s path to becoming a functioning and integral member of the Western European community of nations, taking Greece from an 18th-century appendage of the Ottoman Empire to 21st-century Europe … a short but complete picture of modern Greece and will be a suitable addition to library collection. Recommended.' T. Natsoulas, Choice Connect
