Product description

Review

A classic book a bitter path towards self-knowledge it examines with idiosyncratic sarcasm the subject of Modern Greek identity a truly patriotic book. Dimou places himself at the right distance from his subject observing Greeks as they truly are.  --Alexandros Stergiopoulos | Eleftherotypia Newspaper

Nikos Dimou had a different kind of unhappiness in mind when he wrote On the Unhappiness of Being Greek back in 1975 yet all the symptoms he described at the time contributed greatly towards Greeces present predicament. The mentality that was developed the national identity that was formed after the military dictatorship we are still suffering from the same symptoms and very soon we will find ourselves just as unhappy (as we were back in 1975). --Chrystalla Chatzidimitriou | O Fileleftheros Newspaper
