The Cyprus Revolt

By Nancy Crawshaw
Allen & Unwin, 1978
447 pp. $32.25

This book should take its place at the head of the extensive list of published works on the Cyprus question. It is the most detailed and objective account available on the period of the Greek Cypriot revolt against British rule, aimed at union with Greece, from World War II to the birth of the Republic of Cyprus in 1960. Later events are covered more summarily but with accuracy and balance.
