Abstract

Since 1945 Greece has played a special and very important role in the American Empire. "Counterinsurgency" began there; the Truman Doctrine focused on Greece; the Colonels' coup of 1967 was a sort of prototype of neocolonial military takeovers; Greek economic development has illustrated the development/underdevelopment contradiction in classic fashion; and finally the long history of the Greek revolutionary movement has raised and continues to raise problems which are common to many exploited countries today. The three articles which follow seek to throw light on these problems as they relate not only to Greece but to many other subordinate units in the American Empire. —The Editors
