From the virtual dust jacket:

“Greece is plunged into one of the worst economic crises in post-modern times, one which carries a grave threat to the future of the European Union. In this lively series of essays David Wisner, a long-time resident of the Northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, explores the social character of the crisis, the nature of Greece’s relations with the rest of Europe, and the prospects for a revolutionary outcome to the crisis. Comparing the Greek middle class to Iphigenia, sacrificed by her father Agamemnon so that the Achaeans could sail for Troy, Wisner nonetheless detects an emerging ethos of public service, grounded in a Greek tradition of direct democracy, as one constructive way Greeks might emerge from the crisis. The stakes have never been higher. Anyone who has lived in or visited or otherwise has an interest in Greece will want to read this book.”
