Greece’s Syriza: a well-oiled machine or a slippery slope?

Greece has been in the headlines again this week following the re-election of Alexis Tsipras, leader of the left-wing party Syriza, as prime minister. After an unexpected victory in snap elections, Tsipras was sworn in by Prokopis Pavlopoulos, president of the republic, for the second time pledging to serve his country and his people. He emphasised his intention to lift Greece out of the economic crisis it has struggled with for the last five years and is preparing a new government for the difficult path that lies ahead.

To mark the occasion, Head of Zeus is publishing The Full Catastrophe by James Angelos: a good-humoured, informative and revealing account of the background to Greece’s dire troubles, reported through the stories of the people that define the country today. With vivid character-driven narratives and engaging reporting that offers an immersive sense of place, this book brings to life the causes of the country’s financial collapse and examines the changes emerging in its aftermath.
