Product Description:

In the troubled island of Cyprus, the national interests and rivalries of Greece and Turkey still collide, the population remains divided between the Greek and Turkish communities and the country is still a cat's paw of outside powers--especially the USA and the now resurgent Russia--as it has been since the acquisition of the island by Britain in 1878. These are problems that have been brought into sharp focus by Cyprus's entry into the European Union.

William Mallinson’s book is a fast-moving and incisive narrative history which portrays Cyprus as a continuing source of international tension in the Mediterranean and beyond. It features the latest source material from the recently released National Archive, vivid interviews with key players, even reports which raise awkward and embarrassing questions. His critical eye uncovers the underlying story of American and British involvement in the island's affairs, first as a key territory in Cold War politics with its close proximity to the Middle East and Asia and now as a key asset in the ""war on terror.""

Product Description:
In a compelling study of great-power misconduct, Christopher Hitchens examines the events leading up to the partition of Cyprus and its legacy. He argues that the intervention of four major foreign powers, Turkey, Greece, Britain and the United States, turned a local dispute into a major disaster. In a new preface for this 1997 edition, Hitchens reviews the implications of the Republic of Cyprus’s applications for European union membership, the escalating regional arms race between Greece and Turkey, and last year’s Greek Cypriot protests along the partition border.

Bitter Lemons of Cyprus: Life on a Mediterranean Island

By Lawrence Durrell

Open Road Media
Released: 2012-06-12
Kindle Edition (380 pages)

Bitter Lemons of Cyprus: Life on a Mediterranean Island
 
Product Description:
From the New York Times–bestselling author of the Alexandria Quartet: “A superlative piece of . . . writing . . . rooted in the Mediterranean scene” (Time).
 
In 1953, as the British Empire relaxes its grip upon the world, the island of Cyprus bucks for independence. Some cry for union with Athens, others for an arrangement that would split the island down the middle, giving half to the Greeks and the rest to the Turks. For centuries, the battle for the Mediterranean has been fought on this tiny spit of land, and now Cyprus threatens to rip itself in half.
 
Into this escalating conflict steps Lawrence Durrell—poet, novelist, and a former British government official. After years serving the Crown in the Balkans, he yearns for a return to the island lifestyle of his youth. With humor, grace, and passable Greek, Durrell buys a house, secures a job, and settles in for quiet living, happy to put up his feet until the natives begin to consider wringing his neck. More than a travel memoir, this is an elegant picture of island life in a changing world.

Product Description:
This volume addresses itself to readers interested in Cyprus who want to learn more than what can be found in guidebooks or perhaps in newspapers but do not have the time to delve into the history of this island. It covers the era from 1878 when Cyprus became British to 1977 when Makarios signed the so-called High Level Agreement, dying shortly later. But in order to help the reader to a better understanding of the development from then to the present this concise history contains a short overview of developments after 1977. This is by no means a dry handbook of Cypriot history. The aim is an easy-reading, fascinating text satisfying all scholarly standards.

Cyprus History, and Ancient Period: The Republic of Cyprus, Society, Ethnicity, Economy, Government, Politics

By Henry Albinson

Released: 2016-03-04
Kindle Edition (172 pages)

Cyprus History, and Ancient Period: The Republic of Cyprus, Society, Ethnicity, Economy, Government, Politics
 
Product Description:
The history of Cyprus, also read about Cyprus economy, Cyprus government and politics, Cyprus culture, Cyprus tourism and more
The republic of Cyprus was established in 1960, after the former colony gained independence from Britain. Since 1974, however, a de facto division of the island has existed, with the Greek Cypriot community controlling 63 percent of the territory, and the Turkish Cypriots, backed by Turkish army units, 37 percent. The scene of constant anticolonial and intercommunal strife since the mid-1950s, Cyprus assumed an importance out of proportion to its size and population because of its strategic location and its impact on the national interests of other nations. The island's location in the eastern Mediterranean Sea has made it easily accessible from Europe, Asia, and Africa since the earliest days of ships. Its timber and mineral resources made it important as a source of trade goods in the ancient world, but attracted conquerors, pirates, and adventurers in addition to merchants and settlers. About the middle of the second millennium B.C. Cyprus was subjected to foreign domination for the first time, and from then until 1960, almost without interruption, outside powers controlled the island and its people

Product Description:
It has been 25 years since Greek colonels staged a coup on Cyprus, ousting Greek-Cypriot leader Archbishop Makarios, and Turkey retaliated by invading and seizing a third of the island. The island remains split in two, policed by the United Nations. Henry Kissinger claimed he could do nothing to stop this because of the Watergate crisis. The Cyprus Conspiracy provides crucial evidence that this was no failure of American foreign policy, revealing for the first time the explosive strategic reasons why Washington had to divide the island.
