About this item

This book explores the concept of the Levant as a component of the regional and international system during the age of imperialism. At its heart is a focus on the experience of Greek-speaking societies and the independent state of Greece from 1830. A key sub-theme running through the account is the Anglo-Hellenic connection stemming from an enhanced British presence in the Eastern Mediterranean from the 1830s and 1840s. The core of the volume deals with three interlocking themes: modernity, nationalism and trans-nationalism. Ultimately these forces were to prove at odds with the ambiguity and elite structures that characterized the Levant in its nineteenth-century heyday.
