“Readers who go no further than this concise history will have at their disposal the basic knowledge needed to understand Greece and what made it what it is today.” Times Literary Supplement

“Deftly written and carefully researched, supplemented with tables, short biographies, as well as a listing of the royal houses of Greece, A Concise History of Greece is an excellent and scholarly survey of the modern growth of the nation which is a strongly recommended addition to academic World History collections in general, and Hellenic History supplemental reading lists in particular.” Library Bookwatch

“This new edition will be even more welcome to teachers, as it brings Greece up to 2000 and the 17 November terrorist group, the conflict over religion on identify cards and minority rights, and the Macedonian crisis…. I will have my students buy and use this edition…. the book is a vigorous, well-written, somewhat opinionated and occasionally humorous view of Greek history since 1770, remarkable in the amount of information and context it provides.” Bryn Mawr Classical Review

‘… Clogg succinctly pulls together Greece’s path to becoming a functioning and integral member of the Western European community of nations, taking Greece from an 18th-century appendage of the Ottoman Empire to 21st-century Europe … a short but complete picture of modern Greece and will be a suitable addition to library collection. Recommended.’ T. Natsoulas, Choice Connect
