The Greek Peasant

June 1, 1974
McNall, Scott

by Scott McNall, This study concerns the strategies of response and adaptation of Greek peasants subjected to major crises such as industrialization, emigration from the villages to Athens and abroad, political instability, military occupation, and war; both civil and international. The Monograph argues that the value system the Greeks have adopted historically, is essentially in conflict with the value system necessary for adaptation to a modern, bureaucratic, industrialized and democratic state. 112 pages, 1974.
