Summary

This is the first study to present a comprehensive analysis of Greek foreign and internal policy during the Cold War, covering the key period from the country’s accession to NATO in 1952 until the imposition of the colonels’ dictatorship in 1967.

Clearly divided into three parts: 1952-55, 1955-63 and 1963-67, this book deals with Greek foreign policy analysis; threat perception; the NATO connection (including Greek-US relations, the rise of anti-Americanism in 1955-58 and in 1964-67, the economic dimension of security and the issue of US military aid); Greek policy towards the Soviet bloc; and the regional dimension, mainly Greek policy towards Turkey and Yugoslavia, and (for the 1964-67 years) the Cyprus crisis which greatly complicated Greek security obligations.

This book will be of great interest to students of Greek politics, Balkans history, the Cold War and strategic studies.
