Its upbeat rhythm, light-hearted themes and easy-listening tunes were loved by all social classes and served by composers from both genres.

Ελληνες στο Λονδινο (Greeks in London)
By Dr Nikandros Bouras



Athens - The Truth, by David Cade

This book captures and analyzes the socio-cultural and scientific activities of the Greek community of London, a community consisting of thousands of Greek students and scientists as well as by leading businessmen and professionals. With a simple yet vivid way the author provides an overview of the numerous organizations that, despite a lack of resources,

managed in the period 1974 - 2004 to enable Greeks of London to put Greece and its interests in the public domain through a variety of activities - lectures and conferences, debates and art exhibitions. In parallel there were activities aiming to preserve contact between the Diaspora and Greece. The book is written in a systematic and well-articulated manner, and will be of interest not only to Greeks who lived in London during this period but it is also a valuable addition to the growing collection of writing focusing on the Greek Diaspora, which is recognised to have contributed in various ways and at different times to the transformation of modern Greek society.
