Dimitris N. Karidis. Athens from 1456 to 1920. The Town under Ottoman Rule and the 19th-Century Capital City / Dimitris N. Karidis. Athens from 1920 to 1940. A true and just account of how History was enveloped by a modern City and the Place became an Event
Dimitris Karidis has given us a veritable feast in these two volumes, while opening us up to a sustained barrage of iconoclastic opinions, definitively backed up by the most impressive research, that rewrite our handed-down narratives about the post-Classical city of Athens and its fate up to the 20th century AD. To do this he does not confine himself to the city itself, but lets us know what was happening in the contemporary Attic countryside.
