Great Power Politics in Cyprus

Foreign Interventions and Domestic Perceptions

Editor(s): Michalis Kontos, Sozos-Christos Theodoulou, Nikos Panayiotides, Haralambos Alexandrou

Book Description

This volume approaches foreign interventions in Cyprus from two different angles: a vertical angle, which corresponds to a case-by-case historical analysis of foreign interventions which have taken place throughout the modern history of Cyprus, and a horizontal angle, which corresponds to the implementation of systemic models of analysis in approaching foreign interventions in Cyprus. Furthermore, the volume deals with domestic perceptions formed as a result of foreign interventions in Cyprus, focusing particularly on their impact on the politics and public rhetoric of the Cyprus problem, especially as regards the Greek Cypriot community.
