Soft cover. xvii, 336 pp. Slight pink staining to upper front cover, worn sticker to rear cover, else fine. This book examines the transformation that Greece has experienced in the last decades of the twentieth century by exploring its gradual evolution into a consolidated democracy, an advanced economy in the Eurozone, and a balanced partner in the EU and NATO promoting a stabilizing role in south-eastern Europe. This book identifies the conceptual inertia that has bedevilled studies of Greece and sheds light on the transformation of Greece's national identity, as well as on foreign policy and strategic priorities. There is also an analysis of its media policy, educational system and social development, including the role of women in a changing society.
