Hostage to History: Cyprus From the Ottomans to Kissinger

Description

Preface to second edition by Chrisptopher Hitchesn. Hitchens examines the events of July and August 1974, when Cyprus and it speople were torn in two, subjected to a Greek-directed military coup and a full-scale Turkish occupation. The result was mass killing, deportation, expulsion, and the imposition of partition. A leading player in this drama was Henry Kissinger, and Hitchens shows how his Cyprus policy was a direct counterpart, abroad, of his role in the Watergate scandal at home.
