Cyprus: The Struggle for Self-Determination in the 1940s : Prelude to Deeper Crisis (Koinon: Sozialwissenschaftliche Interdisziplinare Studien, Band 7)

The 1940s were tumultuous in terms of world history. However, they were also pivotal in shaping the destiny of Cyprus, Britain's solitary colony in the eastern Mediterranean, the easterly ouppost of Hellenism and the battleground for one of the bloodiest emergencies in British imperial history (late 1950s). Accordingly, this book has two main objectives. The first is to trace the formulation of Britishi colonial policy towards Cyprus, which resulted in the offer of limited constitutional reform in 1947. The second is toi explore the contrasting responses of the left and right wings of the Greek Cypriot majority. The book argues that London's policy was driven by the perceived need to perpetuate British sovereignty. This overriding aim conditioned all attempts at constitutional reform. It had the effect of driving a wedge between these two Cypriot wings. The Right consistently demanded immediate self-determination (i.e. enosis while the Left adopted a moderate stance, accepting self-government as a staging post on the road towards self-determination. The product of extensive archival research as well as interviews with veterans of the era, this book fills a glarin void in the English language literature on the history of Cyprus and of the empire it once formed part. Contents: Historical overview of the domestic political structure--The build up of pressure for reform: 1935-1945--The debate within the British government 1940-1947: the foreign office versus the colonial office--A question of strategy: self-government of Enosis and only Enosis: 1946-1947--The consultative assembly process and its consequences: November 1947--August 1948.
