'A wide-ranging, thorough and fascinating account of the economic challenges facing Greece.' - James K Galbraith, University of Texas, USA

'This book is the first focused attempt to bring the whole story of Greece's economy into the public domain. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the last 15 years and a first-class and very timely analysis for those wishing to know the economic and institutional pathologies that led the Greek economy to the tragic free fall. It is actually a required reading for all those wishing to know what has actually gone wrong in the Greek Economy.' - Philip Arestis, University of Cambridge, UK

'An extremely timely book as it demonstrates convincingly that the pathologies of the Greek economy have broader political implications.' - Christos P. Ioannides, Queens College, USA

It is a timely leap forward in the debate on the future.' - Kevin Featherstone, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

'A scathing account of Greece's economic implosion.' - New York Times

'An acclaimed book on the Greek crisis...and its past, present and future impact on the Eurozone and across the Globe' -Justin Vaisse, The Brookings Institution
