Product description

Product Description

Greece is famous as the cradle of Western civilisation. But how many of us know just why it holds that special status? And is it just trading on past glories to cope in the modern world, or is it still something special?

Author Theodore Koukouvitis has followed up his entertaining and informative Smart Tourist's Guide To Greece with a miscellany of snippets about his ever-intriguing homeland, reflecting the country's variety as well as his own wide-ranging interests.

Ever wondered why we say, "It's all Greek to me!", or why we're warned to beware of Greeks bearing gifts? This book will tell you. It'll also tell you about the Greek philosophers and thinkers that today's seekers after knowledge owe so much to - and the powerful influence their language has on English. (The traffic's decidedly one-way, though, and this book even tells you why!)

But it'll also show you the land - and sea! - that shaped both the ancient Greeks and their descendants, the food that sustains them, and the customs and traditions they still follow today. You'll find out a bit about the modern Greek state and its citizens too - some of it sobering, some of it surprising, some of it side-splittingly funny! (And while sex doesn't exactly rear its ugly(?) head, it does peep out from under the covers.)

If you'd like a witty and intriguing ramble through the variety that Greece and its people offer, The Facts Lab Book of Greece is the book for you.
