Published in 2006, this is a pioneering study of the impact of the famine that occurred in Greece during its occupation by German, Italian and Bulgarian forces in 1941 and 1942. Violetta Hionidou examines the courses and politics of this food crisis, focussing on the demography of the famine and the effectiveness of the relief operations. Her interdisciplinary approach combines demographic, historical and anthropological methodologies to offer a comprehensive account of the famine. This book is the first to explore the International Red Cross Committee archives which offer new insights into the politics and practice of the relief operations. Dr Hionidou argues that food was used as a propaganda instrument by almost all of those involved including the British and Greek governments as well as the occupying forces. This important study makes a major contribution to current debates about mortality and its causes during famines.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Violetta Hionidou, lecturer in modern history at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, has written a superb book. Famine and Death in Occupied Greece, 1941-1944 is a comprehensive, multidimensional account and examination of the most difficult years in Greece's nearly two-century history." - History
"...there is an embarrassment of riches here: methodologically the book includes both excellent political and demographic archival work as well as field research... Hionidou's book is a substantive contribution to the history of World War II and to understanding famine, the experience of food scarcity, and historical memory." - Journal of Military History
"Famine and Death epitomizes what scholarship should be." Diana Gilliland Wright, Canadian Journal of History
