New Publication: “Britain and the United States in Greece”

Cold War Research Member Spero Simeon Z. Paravantes  has recently published “Britain and the United States in Greece: Anglo-American Relations and the Origins of the Cold War” 

The book reveals how the relationship between Britain and the US developed in this formative period, arguing that Britain used the fast-escalating tensions of the Cold War to direct US policy in Greece and encourage the Americans to take a more active role – effectively taking Britain’s place – in the region. In the process, Paravantes sheds new light on how the American experience in Greece contributed to the formulation of the Truman Doctrine and the containment of communism, the structure of Greek institutions, and ultimately, the birth of the Cold War.
