Clogg offers a captivating historical narrative of the modern history of Greece from its earliest years as a fledging state to the beginning of the twenty-first century. His history, while by no means exhaustive, provides readers with a stable foundation upon which to learn more about the modern history of Greece. Clogg makes Greek political heavyweights like King Otto, Eleftherios Venizelos, Andreas Papandreou, and Konstantinos Karamanlis come alive, with all of their merits and flaws. The biog ...more

Greece's historical legacy ranges from the probing tongue of Socrates to the country's current status as the birthplace of anal sex. Pumping the historical record roughly for data means plunging into a pulsing, dimly lit tunnel of historical introspection which many Greeks aren't quite loosened up for. This book tries to wedge itself in, but comes up dry. The sections on the Ottoman period and early independence, say, up to 1920, are really good, though Clogg's understanding of the Ottomans is f ...more
This is a history book, not a travel book, but if you want some in depth discussions about the deeper roots of issues still going on in modern Greece, it's a good place to start.

Read this as background for my honeymoon in Greece. It is what it says it is, although my level of knowledge about modern Greek politics was precisely zero before reading this. I can know say that it's at least a little better than zero, which is something, I guess.
This book is very easy to read and it's a great introduction to the main events that formed Greece, as we know it today. Sometimes it's really concise and it left me wanting to know more. But I think that's an advantage, both for me and the book.
It's definitely history, told in long, creative sentences. Learned some new words, and a lot about 20th century Greece
