Greece in Modern Times
An Annotated Bibliography of Works Published in English in Twenty-Two Academic Disciplines During the Twentieth Century

Edited by Stratos Constantinidis

978-0-8108-3658-7 · Hardback · March 2000 · $196.00 · (£130.00) · 656pp

This complete and annotated bibliography is the largest and most comprehensive of works published in English about Greece, its people, and modern times. Greece in Modern Times indexes nearly 4,000 books and articles in 22 disciplines published during the twentieth century. The covered texts illustrate the involvement of the broad areas of arts & humanities and behavioral & social sciences in Greece's modern development, from roughly the turn of the eighteenth century to the turn of the twenty-first century. The individual disciplines covered include art, drama, philosophy, theology & religion, anthropology, economics, education, and public policy & management.

Disciplinary categories are subdivided into smaller thematic subsections. Entries are cross-referenced, and when appropriate they point to other texts not included in this particular volume. Greece in Modern Times offers a research path to students exploring any aspect of Modern Greece and a great reference for librarians looking to update any library's Greek studies collection. Also useful for scholars in Greek studies, classics, and modern European history.
