The Greek Turkish relationship has included conquest and revolution, conflict and co-operation, and, today, a cautious friendship. This is good news for the eastern end of the Mediterranean, the Balkans, and indeed Europe as a whole for when those two crucial re-gional powers fall out, the reverberations are felt in the wider world. The contributors to this volume discuss in great detail the new uncertainty that permeates the triangular relationship - Turkey, Greece and the EU - underlining the significance of Europe which has continued to cast its shadow over developments in the north-eastern tip of Mediterranean sea. Margaret MacMillan, Warden of St Antony's College, Oxford
Can the European Union transform Greek-Turkish relations? The contributors to "In the Long Shadow of Europe" examine the ambiguities of Europe's historical role in its Southeastern corner to shed light on the possible paths lying ahead. From their various an-gles, they highlight the paradoxes of a relationship between intimate adversaries, marred by tormented histories, nationalist narratives and bilateral disputes but strengthened by historical familiarity, geographic vicinity, and the imperative for cooperation. And beyond this face a face, the authors show how, as Greece and Turkey developed into independent nation-states in the shadow of Europe, their intertwined trajectories also contributed to defining this same Europe 'at the edges'. Beyond the Greek - Turkish relationship, this book illustrates the considerable challenges the European Union faces as a mediating power both within and outside its borders.See all Product description
