New publication on the British Council and Greece

The British Council and Anglo-Greek Literary Interactions, 1945-1955,

edited by Peter Mackridge and David Ricks.

In the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, and with British political influence over Greece soon to be ceded to the United States, there was nonetheless a degree of cultural interaction between Greek and British literati. Sponsored or assisted by the British Council, this interaction was notable for its diversity and quality alike. This volume sets out to explore the two-way relations between Greek and British literary production in which the British Council played a particularly important role until the outbreak of armed conflict in Cyprus in 1955.

Published by Routledge in the series "Modern Greek and Byzantine Studies" of the British School at Athens.
