""People shape history and yet they are also shaped by it at the same time. This simple truth is brought home to us once again by this biography of Grigoris Lambrakis, by historian Evi Gkotzaridis which was published recently in English by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. By recounting the life of the left-wing Greek deputy as a constant interaction with the turbulent developments of the time, the book deals exhaustively with the description of the latter, stressing in particular all those aspects of post-war Greek reality less known to the international readership but which proved decisive to the evolution and the biological end of the subject: a strong police state, a stifling control of parliamentary life, a close monitoring of the country by the former Allies, and the systematic abetment of a fascist deep state with the purpose of suppressing the internal enemy via illegal methods. While it engages critically with his first biography, written by Konidi Porfyris immediately after his death, this new study significantly enriches what we know about this emblematic figure of the progressive movement in the post-Civil War period with the use of unpublished excerpts from his personal diary, interviews with relatives and additional archival material drawn from various sources."Tasos Kostopoulosesfyn.gr, 18.06.2017
About the Author
Evi Gkotzaridis is a historian with interests in 20th century Greek and contemporary Irish history. She was born in Salonica, raised in Paris, educated at the Sorbonne, and holds a PhD in Irish History and Politics. She lived for six years in Dublin, where she held a Government of Ireland Research Fellowship. She was a Jean Monnet Research Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. She has taught in London, Dublin, Florence, Istanbul and Athens. Her first book, Trials of Irish History: Genesis and Evolution of a Reappraisal, was published by Routledge and represented the first synthesis on the sensitive topic of revisionist scholarship in Ireland. It examined its methodological, theoretical and political implications, and introduced a European dimension to a too-often insular debate on its pros and cons. She lives and teaches in Athens. A Pacifists Life and Death is her first book on Greece.
