Publisher Description

Yiannis Papadakis, Nicos Peristianis & Gisela Welz (eds), Divided Cyprus: Modernity, History, and an Island in Conflict (Bloomington and Indianapolis: Indiana University Press, 2006) ISBN 0-253-21851-9 (Paperback); 235 pp; 15.99 [pounds sterling]. The title Divided Cyprus would suggest a collection of essays discussing history, power politics and social structure either side of Cyprus's so-called green-line and strategies for co-operation between the two sides. In fact, this is not the case. Certainly Yael Navaro-Yashin's contribution, "De-ethnicizing the Ethnography of Cyprus" explores a set of issues that pertain directly to political and social life in Northern Cyprus, while Yiannis Papadakis's "Disclosure and Censorship in Divided Cyprus" straddles the "dead zone", as the green line is known to Greek Cypriots. Rebecca Bryant, in "On the Condition of Postcoloniality in Cyprus", admirably weaves together a dialectics of economics, imperialism, education and ethno-national identity amongst Turkish and Greek Cypriots during the period of British rule. Otherwise, the "other half" of "divided Cyprus" is present only through its absence.
