The Greeks, the Troika, Resistance and History

As we head into 2017, the world seems to be heading towards even greater uncertainty.  The nationalist rejection of the EU in Britain, the uncertain meaning of the US election and future (at this writing) results, a seeming desire by western capitals and Russia for greater war in the Middle East, and various artificial bubbles created and maintained by the gamblers in the financial markets; all of these seem to point to more of the same for Greece with an ever growing likelihood that the next burst financial bubble will take down more than just those economies considered on the fringe of the central markets.  This uncertainty alone is reason enough to read this book.
