The Metamorphosis of Greece Since World War II
The Metamorphosis of Greece Since World War II
By William H. McNeill
University of Chicago Press, 1978, 264 pp.

The attempt to transform Greek public life over the past 30 years has been an extraordinary success, without parallel in Greek history, argues McNeill, largely because local traditions and values have meshed smoothly with the demands and pressures of modernization. His study, infinitely rich and suggestive, will be read by all who want to understand contemporary Greece and her possible future.
