Located on the southern-most tip of the Balkan peninsula in Europe's southeast, Greece is a small country of some 11 million people. And while few people have a longer history than the Greeks, Modern Greece is a fairly young country, having been founded in 1830. Greece has come a long way since then; it has been a client state, first of Britain and then of the United States, for much of its modern existence but now it has secured an equal place at the top tables of NATO and the EU. The Historical Dictionary of Modern Greece explores the modern history of this country through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions, as well as on significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects.

MEDIA REVIEWS
More than 180 cross-referenced entries cover important persons, events, institutions, politics, the economy, society, and culture. The easy-to-read entries are substantive.... Along with an excellent bibliography are appendixes for kings, presidents, prime ministers, national election results, country facts, and economics. Recommended. * CHOICE, April 2010 *
This work is for the student or researcher needing a quick reference to a particular modern Greek person, event, or place. It is recommended for collections that are acquiring the entire Historical Dictionaries of Europe series or that have an emphasis in the country or area. * Booklist, January 2010 *
Academic libraries catering for courses in modern history, international relations, etc. who have found other volumes in this series useful will certainly find this worth considering. * "American Reference Books Annual" *
