Summary

This title was first published in 2000:  Contemporary Greek society is characterized by an all-embracing trend for reform. This task, however, is constrained by problems of Greek polity rooted in the historical and political culture. This text explores the important facets of divergence between Greece and the EU, examining the process through which they affect the relative performance of the country in the economic, social, political and international relations fronts, together with significant attempts to modernize and rationalize internal and external policies and structures. The book is in five parts. In the first, introductory, section, Greece's Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, the late Yannos Kranidiotis, analyzes the fundamental objectives of Greek foreign policy, whilst the editors explore the challenges of EU membership for Greek domestic and foreign politics, and Greece's participation in the process of European integration. The second part deals with Greece and the EMU, the third analyzes the issues related to state modernization and adjustment. A fourth section examines the welfare state and related policies, and the final part analyzes Greece's foreign policy and external relations, with particular emphasis on the Balkans and Greek-Turkish relations.
