Charmed for decades by the music of Oscar-winning Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis, David Cade explores Athens as news breaks at the end of 2009 that Greece is in serious financial difficulty. The author talks to Athenians, examines many of the city's extraordinary attractions, and surveys key aspects of Greece's modern history.



Afterword: An extended Afterword describes how for three and a half years (until the time of publication, mid 2013) Greece lurched from one cliff-hanging crisis to another while miseries endured by ordinary Greek citizens increased to levels that were horrifying. The Afterword ends with the swelling demand amongst Greeks for social justice, a change of direction, and determined political action against ruthless financial institutions and international corporations.
