abstract
"The discovery of natural gas off the shores of Cyprus has placed this Eastern Mediterranean microstate on then geopolitical map. A postcolonial island previously known for its long-drawn-out conflict and ethnic divisions, Cyprus is one of the most militarized zones in the world, with foreign armies and two British bases. This volume deals with aspects of transformations as instances of Cyprus's regional and global realities, mapping socio-political realities and articulations both embedded in the local context simultaneously interwoven with regional factors, particularly in the triangle of Turkey, Greece and the EU. The volume aims to rethink how changes in a boundary society can tell something about worlds in the making"--
"This book presents a fresh perspective on the Cyprus problem by going beyond analyses that focus exclusively on the geopolitical or identity dimensions.Itmakes the complexity ofthe problem clearby assessing the role of class and other social forces as well as the changing regional and global context that shapes Cyprus. It examines the societal transformations taking place within the island: socio-economic development, population transitions and migration, and rapidly changing social and political institutions. The book provides a holistic and critical approach to the transformations in Cyprus from a comparative-historical methodological perspective"--

Long Description
The discovery of natural gas off the shores of Cyprus has placed this Eastern Mediterranean microstate on then geopolitical map. A postcolonial island previously known for its long-drawn-out conflict and ethnic divisions, Cyprus is one of the most militarized zones in the world, with foreign armies and two British bases. This volume deals with aspects of transformations as instances of Cyprus's regional and global realities, mapping socio-political realities and articulations both embedded in the local context simultaneously interwoven with regional factors, particularly in the triangle of Turkey, Greece and the EU. The volume aims to rethink how changes in a boundary society can tell something about worlds in the making.
Main Description
A postcolonial island in possession of natural gas reserves and previously known for its long-drawn-out conflict and ethnic divisions, Cyprus is one of the most militarized zones in the world, with foreign armies and two British bases. This volume deals with transformations in Cyprus's regional and global realities, mapping socio-political realities both embedded in the local context and simultaneously interwoven with regional factors, particularly in the triangle of Turkey, Greece and the EU. Ultimately, the volume rethinks how changes in a boundary society can tell something about worlds in the making.
