  • Introduction: The Colonels' Dictatorship and Its Afterlives
    • Abstract: A half century after the coup d'état of 21 April 1967, the art exhibition documenta 14 launched its public programs in Athens by revisiting the Colonels' dictatorship. The organizers chose the former headquarters of the infamous military police (EAT/ESA) to host the "exercises of freedom,"1 a series of walking tours, lectures, screenings, and performances that examined resistance, torture, trauma, and displacement in a comparative perspective. The initiative was met with mixed feelings, and its public discussion raised important questions about the past. Why is it urgent today to revisit the junta as a period of acute trauma' Can we trace the roots of Greece's current predicament to its non-democratic past' What ... Read More

  • Making History (Disappear): Greece's Junta Trials and the Staging of
           Political Legitimation
    • Abstract: In July 1975, Giorgos Papadopoulos burst out of a Korydallos prison courtroom where he and his fellow junta ringleaders stood trial for high treason and sedition, crying: "I will answer only to History and to the Greek people." The voice of the presiding judge, Yannis Ntegiannis, followed him: "Do you think that History is absent from this courtroom'" (Time 1975).The Colonels' regime, inaugurated with much pomp and circumstance, was eclipsed in a whimper. Although the Polytechnic uprising in November 1973, posited as the beginning of the end of the regime, had spectacularized a popular withdrawal of consent from the Colonels' leadership, the junta had outlived it by months. Staggering, it had dragged on its tenure ... Read More

  • From Fascist Overload to Unbearable Lightness: Recollections of the
           Military Junta as Kitsch in Postdictatorial Greece
    • Abstract: Since the mid-1980s, the military dictatorship of 1967–1974 has been remembered as the apex of kitsch in Greece. A loaded term that connotes cultural derivativeness, sensationalism, and the popular (or populist), "kitsch" particularly lends itself towards recollections of the dictatorship's popular culture and propaganda. It seems almost unimaginable, for instance, that an article on the junta's kitsch could today exclude a reference to the regime's mass spectacles held annually at the Panathenaic Stadium. And it is certainly true that few (if any) other adjectives can adequately capture the dictatorship's annual spectacles for the Eορτή της Ημέρας της Πολεμικής Αρετής των Eλλήνων (Celebration of the Day of the ...

  • A View on the Greek Dictatorship from the "Lighthouse" of The New York
           Review of Books (1967–1974)
    • Abstract: In 2006, The National Book Foundation awarded the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community to the founders of The New York Review of Books for contributing to the cultural landscape a journal which "raised reviewing to an art and made the discussion of books a lively, provocative and intellectual activity" (National Book Foundation 2006). First published in 1963, the Review had set out to address a noticeable lacuna in American cultural journalism: the lack of a stimulating weekly literary review, similar in scope to those based in European metropolitan centers. The place that the journal aimed to occupy within the cultural establishment was prefigured by Elizabeth Hardwick, a ... Read More

  • Urban Politics, Planning, and Public Discourses on the City During the
           Greek Dictatorship (1967–1974): Continuities and Ruptures in Postwar
           Modernization
    • Abstract: Spatial politics and planning during the military dictatorship years constitute a broad field of social and political practices that remains largely unexplored. This lack of research is in striking contrast to the importance that the period carries for understanding postwar urbanization processes and the formation of Greek planning ideologies and practices. The existing literature on the planning history of Greece offers few insights and usually considers the dictatorship as a "parenthesis" or a time of "frozen activity" concerning planning and scientific debates (Vasenhoven 1995, 119). A common periodization clearly distinguishes the junta's "seven years in plaster"1 from the short 1960s, a period that is ... Read More

  • The Colonels on the Beach: Tourism Policy During the Greek Military
           Dictatorship (1967–1974)
    • Abstract: The military dictatorship in Greece, which came to power by a coup on 21 April 1967, occurred during a period in which democratic liberalism held ideological hegemony over most Western European countries (Kaminis 1999, 67). The Colonels operated within an international political framework characterized by limited tolerance for regimes associated with the disastrous interwar period (Antoniou and Kouki in this volume). The regime's leaders were conscious of their precarious position, both domestically and internationally, and to this end they often made references in their public discourse to the impending democratization process (Papadimitriou 1999, 55). Thus, the economic policy pursued by the first dictatorial ... Read More

    • Abstract: On the evening of 19 April 1972, two days before the Greek military junta's fifth anniversary, the urban guerilla group Λαϊκή Eπαναστατική Αντίσταση (LEA, Popular Revolutionary Resistance) blew up a bust of Ioannis Metaxas in the district of Kokkinia (present day Nikaia) in Piraeus. Attacking statues was certainly not a rarity at the time of the dictatorship (Harry Truman's statue in central Athens, for example, had been bombed repeatedly), but LEA's attack was certainly one of the most imaginative and, even years later, a source of much pride for its members.1 In true ancient Greek fashion, the bomb was hidden in a wreath placed on the statue's head, according to former LEA member Alexandros Giotopoulos. As per ... Read More

  • "Magical Liturgy": A History of Sound at the Kyttaro Music Club,
           1970–1974
    • Abstract: The acclaimed documentary film Ζωντανοί στο Κύτταρο: Σκηνές ροκ (Live at the Kyttaro: Rock scenes, 2005) kicks off with a street sequence in black and white, shot in a super-8 manner, that resembles footage from the 1970s. Rock musician and actor Dimitris Poulikakos, a signature figure of the 1960s, rides an old BMW motorcycle with a sidecar, in which is seated the much younger Antonis Boskoitis, the director of the film. Clad in Vietnam-style military jackets, they both sport long hair and beards. The camera follows them as they traverse the area of central Athens near the Kyttaro—a club created in 1970 and still running. To the sound of «Οι μηχανές μου» (My machines) sung by the duo Lida–Spyros (1972), the two ... Read More

  • Theo Angelopoulos's O Thiasos/The Travelling Players (1975) and Oi
           Kynigoi/The Hunters (1977) and How They Affect the Brechtian Project
    • Abstract: Bertolt Brecht and his aesthetics are an established methodological way of understanding and valuing Theo Angelopoulos's work. Indeed, several scholars have characterized the cinema of Angelopoulos as Brechtian and devoted much attention to its Brechtian defamiliarization (Verfremdung) effects, commonly known as V-effects. For example, Isabelle Jordan argues that The Travelling Players is an epic film "exactly in the same way as the non-Aristotelian Brechtian theater is considered epic" (2000, 232, my translation.). She goes on to point out how the filmmaker presents important historical facts in the film by focusing on unknown people and side events; how he provides no psychological explanation about the ...

  • An Eternal Balancing Act: Cyprus, Britain, and the Refugee Question in the
           SBAs
    • Abstract: In recent times, Europe has faced what has been described as an unprecedented migration and refugee crisis. The United Nations Refugee Agency has estimated that well over one million people, mostly from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, have crossed into Europe since the start of 2015 (UNHCR 2016a). The most dominant and visually arresting form of travel has been by sea, as thousands of men, women, and children have sought to traverse the narrow sea between Turkey and Greece in overfilled boats and inflatable dinghies. For many, these voyages have ended in tragedy. And yet the boats continued to come. Moreover, the response across Europe has been controversial and much debated. Borders have been closed, walls and ... Read More

  • The Greek Dream by Monsieur de Choiseul: The Travels of a European of the
           Enlightenment by Frédéric Barbier (review)
    • Abstract: Frédéric Barbier takes us on a long journey, that of a French aristocrat of the Age of Enlightenment, "a man with a dream," a vision of a Europe in the process of construction, inspired by a "Greek antiquity not only idealized but accomplishable in modernity" (15). Barbier offers us a biography on a figure of the first generation of French Philhellenism. Biographies of male and female travel writers of the past centuries are extremely rare, such as Sture Linnér's (1965) book on nineteenth century Swedish traveler Fredrika Bremer i Grekland (Frederika Bremer in Greece), translated and published in Greek in 1997. Barbier provides the first biography of Count Marie-Gabriel-Florent-Auguste de Choiseul-Gouffier ... Read More

  • Designing Peace: Cyprus and Institutional Innovations in Divided Societies
           by Neophytos Loizides (review)
    • Abstract: "All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" (1), famously begins Tolstoy's Anna Karenina ([1878] 1992). There seems to be an emerging consensus on what factors account for high scores in the recent global "happiness indices" (equality of income distribution, trust, and security in the form of welfare provisions). However, this is not the case when it comes to societies with protracted conflicts. What could provide the basis, then, for a comparative conflict studies' As Loizides argues, "The main motivation in this book has been to reestablish the confidence to peace frequently lost in Cyprus and elsewhere in divided societies by demonstrating how conflict transformation ...

  • Homebound: Diaspora Spaces and Selves in Greek American Return Narratives
           by Evangelia Kindinger (review)
    • Abstract: Evangelia Kindinger offers a nuanced and adept analysis of narratives of Greek Americans' relocation to Greece, which she frames within the context of diaspora discourses. Drawing from literary and cultural studies as well as the social sciences, Kindinger seeks to answer the following questions: "Can people actually return to a place they have never lived in before' What differentiates the return journey from other journeys' What happens to categories of home(land) and (national) identity when one chooses to leave one home to return to another' What happens to the concept of 'nation-as-home' when one claims to be affiliated and emotionally connected to more than one place'" (18). Each chapter begins with a poem or ... Read More

           of Reform by Merih Erol, and: Music in Cyprus ed. by Jim Samson and
           Nicoletta Demetriou, and: Translation and Popular Music: Transcultural
           Intimacy in Turkish-Greek Relations by Şebnem Susam-Saraeva (review)
    • Abstract: Despite Greece's historical position as a literal crossroads of Mediterranean cultures and the region's staggering variety of fundamentally hybrid musical genres, the last several decades saw relatively little English-language scholarship on music making in the Greek Aegean. For reasons bound to the institutional and political history of their discipline, ethnomusicologists and other music researchers working in the Balkans have paid a disproportionate amount of attention to Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Albania as sites for ethnographic fieldwork, largely neglecting these nations' southern neighbor. In the last few years, however, a number of promising young scholars from American and British universities have ... Read More

           Studies in history and memory] by Rena Molho (Pένα Μόλχο) (review)
           
    • Abstract: The central question in the history of Greek Jews is whether they are part of the country and its heritage or historical flotsam that arrived on Greece's shores. Until recently, historians ignored Greek Jews and treated the Holocaust in Greece as of little concern to Greek history. Although popular and official opinion in Greece rejects the notion that the Jews are truly Greek, the books under review are part of a growing literature that incorporates the Jews into Greek history.The focus of this research is Salonika (Thessaloniki). For most of its modern history, the city had a distinctly Jewish character derived from the longstanding presence of Jews from the Iberian Peninsula. Public life in Salonika, for ... Read More

  • Consumption and Gender in Southern Europe since the Long 1960s eds. by
           Kostis Kornetis, Eirini Kotsovili, and Nikolaos Papadogiannis (review)
    • Abstract: The edited volume Consumption and Gender in Southern Europe since the Long 1960s aims to address the transition processes to democratization in three countries of Southern Europe (Greece, Spain, Portugal) by focusing on aspects of consumer and gender transformations. This volume is a welcome addition to the research wave of transitology studies by offering a complementary while fresh approach. Most of the scholarly literature on the transition processes to date emphasizes political and mainly institutional changes. This book succeeds in further problematizing the long democratic transitions in (post)authoritarian Southern Europe beyond traditional political and social science approaches (high politics) by bringing ...

  • Prime Ministers in Greece: The Paradox of Power by Kevin Featherstone and
           Dimitris Papadimitriou (review)
    • Abstract: In their coauthored book Prime Ministers in Greece: The Paradox of Power, Kevin Featherstone and Dimitri Papadimitriou explore a challenge faced by executives everywhere: "how to establish a system of operational control and coordination of the (government) administrative machine in order to better achieve the objectives set" (1). By analyzing the main Greek premierships from 1974 to 2009, the authors expose a Greek "paradox": the Greek constitution affords the country's prime ministers exceptional powers and few restraints, yet other forces—including operational structures, processes, and available resources—undermine that power and the ability of each prime minister to manage government. Effective leadership is ... Read More

  • Jewish Salonica: Between the Ottoman Empire and Modern Greece by Devin E.
           Naar (review)
    • Abstract: If we figuratively transfer ourselves to Salonica (Thessaloniki) at the start of the twentieth century, we would experience a prospering Mediterranean port that was neither a cultural melting pot nor a Greek city of Christian Orthodoxy. Rather, it would exist as a more-or-less peaceful salad bowl of different ethnicities, religions, and languages existing within the prevailing (but certainly declining) Ottoman Empire. In fact, while the social atmosphere during this period consisted of many ethnic and religious groups, they frequently did not intermingle in their personal lives. A power struggle between the various ethnic groups ensued over the course of a long decade of bloodshed between the Balkan Wars ... Read More

  • In Defence of Europe by Loukas Tsoukalis (review)
    • Abstract: Europe has been seriously traumatized by the 2008–2009 financial crisis, which turned into a sovereign debt crisis and then into a recession. In addition, the policies adopted to overcome it have not been particularly effective. The economic consequences for the weaker countries have been dire, and the political consequences are seen in the rise of populism and extremist parties. Signs of economic and political implosion are evident in many member countries, even in large and powerful ones. Is there a way out' Has the European project failed, at least in terms of delivering the goods promised' Can one provide serious arguments in defense of Europe'Loukas Tsoukalis, in his masterful analysis, attempts precisely the ...

  • Austerity Measures: The New Greek Poetry ed. by Karen Van Dyck (review)
    • Abstract: The Penguin edition of this urgent anthology (2016) carried on its back cover two lines from a short poem, "Elegy," by Stamatis Polenakis, translated by Richard Pierce:Nothing, not even the drowning of a child,stops the perpetual motion of the world.I know that today or yesterday some child drowned;a child who drowned today or yesterdayis nothing—an inanimate puppetin the hands of God, a short motionless poemin the perpetual motion of the world.(235)Perhaps it was not used on the back cover of the present edition because while it speaks so heartbreakingly of the refugee crisis, the poem does not touch on the Greek economic crisis or the crises of being and identity expressed by so many other poems ...

  • La ville, la nation et l'immigré: Rapports entre Grecs et Turcs à
           Bruxelles by Katerina Seraïdari (review)
    • Abstract: Katerina Seraïdari has chosen Brussels, the symbolic heart of political Europe and seat of its central bodies, to study the relations between two foreign and immigrant communities, both originating on the margins of the European continent. Although its main theme is the relations between Greeks and Turks on an apparently neutral ground, the book raises many other questions. To what extent does a nation of origin keep its control over its expatriated communities' Do deterritorialization and distance from their respective fatherlands lead to some rapprochement between Greeks and Turks, traditionally considered as enemies and hostile to each other'This book claims to adopt an anthropological approach. It relies on ... Read More
