Modern Greece is a state caught between two worlds: the traditions and cultural identity of its glorious past, and its present status as a modernized nation. A concise, up-to-date account of contemporary Greek society, this volume uniquely blends the old and new to examine the people, land, political and economic institutions, international relations, and culture of a nation in search of identity. Succinctly covering contemporary political and social developments from a sociological point of view, the authors discuss Greece's experience with NATO, the Middle East, and the European Economic Community, and provide a penetrating analysis of the current socialist government and economic problems.
