Occasioned by developments in Greece over the past decade, these books offer background and explanations, none quite satisfactory. The first, a neo-Marxist analysis, considers Greece (like the other authoritarian regimes in southern Europe) a victim of imperialist dependence. The second sees foreign interference as a persistent feature of Greek political life since the early 19th century. The third book, by a Greek journalist educated in this country, absolves the United States and blames the Greek "problem" on native politics and corrupt politicians.
