David Wills (editor), Greece and Britain since 1945, second edition, paperback, 2014, Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

In 1945 the modern country and people of Greece were unknown to many Britons. This book explores the transformation and varying fortunes of Anglo-Greek relations since that time. The focus is on the perceptions and attitudes shown by British and Greek writers, audiences, and organisations.

Greece and Britain since 1945 has chapters from leading academics, journalists, novelists, and public servants. Subjects covered include: literature by Greek writers in English translation; the work of the British Council and international aid agencies; and television series set in Greece.

The 2nd edition has been substantially updated to reflect the financial, economic and social effects of the recent “Greek Crisis”. Four specially-commissioned new chapters discuss how Greece has been portrayed in the British media and the responses of cultural organisations to the present needs of the Greek people.

Contributors: Brian Church, David Connolly, Agatha Kalisperas, Peter Mackridge, William Mallinson, Alexandra Moschovi, Eleni Papargyriou, Richard Pine, Jim Potts, Loretta Proctor, David Rice, George Tzogopoulos, and David Wills.
