About this product
- DescriptionCrete is an island that both attracts and repels. Consequently, it has been invaded many times but has never been totally subjugated and has always maintained a sense of separate identity -- and this is as true today as it was in the past. This is the argument put forward in Uncaptured Crete. The book maintains that there is an invasion taking place in Crete w, one that stems from the forces of globalisation and Cretes membership (through Greece) of the European Union. It is manifested in a massive influx of tourists, long-term migrants and capital and in the increasing influence of regional and international government. In the process of explaining this argument, the author provides a comprehensive overview of the islands geography and history and a fascinating insight into life in Crete today. Uncaptured Crete is essential reading for anyone who visits or lives in this fascinating island, or is merely just curious to kw more about it.
