This book addresses a gap in scholarly literature by bringing together specialists from different disciplinary traditions - history, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, literature, ethnomusicology and international relations - so as to examine the complex relationship between the culture and peoples of Greece, Turkey and Cyprus, since the founding of the Republic of Turkey in 1923, and to question essentialist representations, stereotypes and dominant myths. The collection offers essential reading for students and researchers in inter-cultural communication, language, international relations, and conflict studies.
