Nationalism in the Troubled Triangle: Cyprus, Greece and Turkey
Title: Nationalism in the Troubled Triangle: Cyprus, Greece and Turkey
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Citation: Basingstoke, Palgrave Macmillan, 2010
This is the first systematic study of nationalism in Cyprus, Greece and Turkey to date in the English language. Bringing scholars from Greece, Turkey and both sides of the dead zone in Cyprus (and beyond) together, the book provides a comparative account of nation-building processes and nationalist politics in all three countries and four cases as well as more specific, thematic comparisons of political leaderships, institutions and foreign policies in what obstinately remains a playground of competing nationalisms. It also engages critically with official myths and narratives in Cyprus, Greece and Turkey and questions traditional nationalist discourses.
