"Very highly recommended . . . opens Greek history to non specialists, telling an important story of a people at the core of Western culture." - Mediterranean Quarterly
"Elaine Thomopoulos is a gifted writer. Her book is a marvel of story telling, one of the best histories of modern Greece. At a time when Greece is suffering from economic hardships, it is refreshing and enlightening to read this dispassionate and clear account of how Greece came into being as a modern state and society. Greece will rise again. I recommend this powerful book very strongly." (Evaggelos Vallianatos, Ph.D., Write, Historian)
"A thorough overview of the history of Greece from Prehistory to our times, resulted after years of laborious and systematic work. This objective, intelligible, and solidly documented book provides valuable information to everyone who is interested in Greece and her people" (Andronikos Falangas, Adjunct Professor, Columbia College Chicago)
"Elaine Thomopoulos, in a clear and concise manner, gives an account of the history of Greece that would appeal to most readers. Interesting and especially useful for its chapters on contemporary Greek History, it offers a valuable insight on the country's trajectory through―always turbulent, it seems―times." (Mathilde Pyrli, Archivist, Photographic Archive, ELIA-MIET)
"The succinct but broad survey of Hellenic traditions offered by Elaine Thomopoulos offers students, especially those taking modern Greek studies courses, a historical context for cultural studies in various areas. The work wisely emphasizes the impact of World War II and the Greek dictatorship of (1967-1974), the two periods which have shaped contemporary Greek society." (Dan Georgakas, Director of the Greek American Studies Project, Center for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, Queens College (CUNY) and editorial board of Cineaste film quarterly.)
