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

By Henry Albinson

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

  • Used Book in Good Condition
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.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
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.

Product Description:

The island of Cyprus has been bitterly divided for more than four decades. One of the most divisive elements of the Cyprus conflict is the writing of its history, a history called on by both communities to justify and explain their own notions of justice. While for Greek Cypriots the history of Cyprus begins with ancient Greece and Hellenistic culture, for the Turkish Cypriot community the history of the island begins with the Ottoman invasion of 1571. The singular narratives both sides often employ to tell the story of the island are, as this volume argues, a means of continuing the battle which has torn the island apart, and an obstacle to resolution.

The Cyprus Conflict and History re-orientates history-writing on Cyprus from a tool of division to a form of dialogue, and explores a way forward for the future of conflict resolution in the region.

  • A History of Cyprus
Product Description:
Sir George Francis Hill (1867-1948), was perhaps best known as a numismatist, although his scholarly interests and accomplishments included a range of time periods and subjects. A classicist by training, Hill built his career at the British Museum's department of coins and medals. In his forty-three years there he produced volumes on coins of antiquity; Greek history and art; coins, heraldry, and iconography of medieval and Renaissance Italy; and treasure troves. In 1931 Hill became the Museum's director and principal librarian, the first archaeologist to hold this post. His four-volume History of Cyprus (1940-52) ranged from Cyprus's earliest years to the twentieth century, and became the standard text on the subject. It is a valuable resource for scholars of the country, of antiquity and of the Mediterranean world. Volume 3, organized largely around monarchical reigns, concludes Hill's analysis of the Frankish period (1432-1571).

  • Three Hellene Cypriots A Personal Journey and Commentary on Cyprus Modern History to 1950
Product Description:
Cyprus is a Mediterranean island located at the intersection of three continents and across from the Suez canal. Thus, it occupies a strategic geopolitical position. Its Greek (Hellenic) character dates to about 1600 B.C. Rather remarkable is the connection of Cyprus with rather different and apparently dissimilar topics. That is, Massachusetts Patriots, the Spirit of the Marathon, Greek liberation wars, British Empire, Ottoman Turkish Empire, Crimean War, Jewish homeland, self determination and love of freedom. The Cyprus-born, United States educated author puts all that together in his journey through Cyprus history to the end of the first half of the twentieth century. The author demonstrates how a peaceful people attempted to reach self determination from its colonial masters. Yet, this fundamental human right was denied and frustrated by the colonial ruling power. What followed to this Mediterranean island in the second half of the 20th century was already set up by then, as shown in this book.
