About the book
In our collective memory, the Association Agreement of 1961 is usually overshadowed by Greece’s full accession to the EEC in 1981. While plausible on a symbolic level, this difference in emphasis is unfair to the Association Agreement, both as a political initiative and as a diplomatic venture. In this book, the associate professor of history at the University of Sheffield and the American College of Greece, Irini Karamouzi, discusses the development of negotiations through dozens of documents and photographs from the Archive of Ioannis (Yangos) Pesmazoglou, places the Greek case in its international context and sheds light on invisible sides of the accession process.
About the series “Documents from the Historical Archives” of the Bank of Greece
Unpublished documents, confidential reports, business letters and personal testimonies co-exist in the new publication series of the Bank of Greece, which showcases the richness of its Historical Archives. Each book focuses on a historical event, a critical period or an important person, which are illuminated by unpublished archival documents. Specialised scientists select, combine and comment on the archival material, helping the reader to navigate through the sources and to experience his own, unmediated contact with the raw matter of history.
