Details

The largest of the Greek islands has often been ruled by invaders attracted by its strategic position close to Europe, Africa and Asia. After describing the ancient Minoan civilization, this historical survey follows Crete’s fortunes through periods of occupation by powers from both west (Romans, Venetians, the Third Reich) and east (Byzantines, Ottomans), and illustrates how these experiences shaped Cretans’ fierce love of freedom as well as the traditional society and culture that continue to flourish today.
