Possibly the best analysis of the Cyprus conflict. Dr Anastasiou begins with an early childhood memory of witnessing a brutal murder in his native Cyprus to a powerful, exhaustive and convincing analysis of the underlying cause of this crime and the continuing conflict on the island. The cause? Nationalism. The rise of modern nationalism, ironically not of Greek or Turkish origin, and it devastating, evil effects are chronicled.

This book is essential reading not just for those of us who live on the island but for anyone wanting to understand the Cyprus and Greek-Turkish conflicts. But is also a very valuable read for any who would want to understand the rise and deification of the modern nation state and its inevitable propensity to barbarism.

Thank-you, Dr Anastasiou.

Format: Hardcover
The author's diagnosis of the causes of the inter-ethnic strife between the two communities of Cyprus correctly identifies nationalism on both sides as being the primary culprit behind the unfortunate events of the 1950s and onwards. However, the author's subsequent analysis of the process leading to the referenda, as well as of the prospects of a future settlement in general, is unduly based on the assumption that abandoning the nationalist policies and attitudes which drove a wedge between the two communities in the past would enable the two sides, which are now full-fledged polities, to successfully merge into a common, federal state. After all, despite the cordial relationship that has developed between former arch-foes France and Germany, there is no underlying assumption that the two countries should (or could) merge into a common, federal structure. Instead, France and Germany, along with another 25 countries, have opted for the European Union framework, which allows countries to retain most of their national sovereignty while providing ample opportunities for cross-border cooperation. A French citizen can freely move to Germany to work, study, start a business, buy property etc. He remains however a French citizen, is not entitled to any special minority rights in Germany, and does not have the right to vote in German national elections. France has no right to tell Germany whom it should grant citizenship to, and under what conditions. France is not responsible for providing unemployment or other similar benefits to German citizens. While the author lavishly praises the EU for its vast achievements in the last 40 years, he does not explore to what extent adopting the EU framework in Cyprus would provide a viable alternative serving the interests of all Cypriots while minimizing friction.
