"GREECE AND BRITAIN SINCE 1945" - new book

GREECE AND BRITAIN SINCE 1945, edited by David Wills, has just been published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

"In 1945 the modern country and people of Greece were unknown to many Britons. This book explores the transformation and varying fortunes of Anglo-Greek relations since that time. The focus is on the perceptions and attitudes shown by British and Greek writers, audiences, and organisations.

"Greece and Britain Since 1945" has contributions from leading academics, journalists, novelists, and public servants. Subjects covered include: literature by Greek writers in English translation; the work of the British Council and international aid agencies; and television series set in Greece."

Contributing authors include Peter Mackridge, David Connolly and Alexandra Moschovi.

My own chapter is concerned with cultural relations between Britain and Greece, and with the work of The British Council in Greece since 1939, and post-war.

It can be ordered online at or by email at
