From the preface by His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain - "Greek emigration has been a phenomenon as ancient, as varied and as interesting as the Greeks themselves. Its causes, as well as its results, have kept both historians and linguists heavily occupied in investigating it since Homer decided to explore its implications in his two magnificent and unparalleled epics. The study of the issue "Greek outside Greece" is an important subject matter, yet one should be careful not to confuse the events of ancient times with the conditions under which present-day emigration is carried out. In ancient times the emigrating Greeks usually had the upper hand when settling in a foreign land: they were the carriers of an advanced civilization as compared with that of the peoples amongst whom they had planned to live permanenetly, and, most probably, to control and educate, whilst contemporary emigration is quite the opposite". Based on papers delivered at a conference in London in 1989, this work looks at modern Greek language issues and modern Greek literature outside Greece It should be of interest to linguists and students of European literature.
