[This] collection demonstrates a most unusual depth of articulation and balance in its accounts. . . . [It] is well crafted to reach a fariety of audiences, including students, scholars, and activists concerned with Cyprus, and most certainly political geographers interested in unpacking the workings of spatial power in zones of conflict. Issue 29, 2010 Source: Political Geography
Of the recent publications on the 'Cyprus Problem', Divided Cyprus ranks amongst the best. It is scholarly, very well conceived, nicely structured, and expertly executed. Most importantly, it is thought provoking. I highly recommend it to any serious scholar of Cyprus’ past and present, and to those interested in its future progress. Source: Cyprus Review
The volatile recent past of Cyprus has turned this island from the idyllic "island of Aphrodite" of tourist literature into a place renowned for hostile confrontations. Cyprus challenges familiar binary divisions, between Christianity and Islam, Greeks and Turks, Europe and the East, tradition and modernity. Anti-colonial struggles, the divisive effects of ethnic nationalism, war, invasion, territorial division, and population displacements are all facets of the notorious Cyprus Problem. Incorporating the most up-to-date social and cultural research on Cyprus, these essays examine nationalism and interethnic relations, Cyprus and the European Union, the impact of immigration, and the effects of tourism and international environmental movements, among other topics.See all Product description

It was my first posting in 1963,they all lived together in peace,and then December 1963 the strife started and lead to the island as it is today.
No wonder Denktash was dismissive of combined island at a recent press conference.Good book factual as far as my memories as a british squaddie who was there,and watched it all happen.
