New article by Dr William Mallinson on Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus, 1974

In 2016 Cambridge Scholars Publishing published Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus: Diplomacy in the Eastern Mediterranean by Dr William Mallinson, which was followed by the release of a paperback edition in 2017. Alongside co-author Vassilis Fouskas, William has just published a new article in The Cyprus Review building on the book.

The full issue, including this article, can be viewed here, and below is an excerpt:

“Our article, using recently released papers, sets out to demonstrate how Kissinger was prone to procrastination and obfuscation, almost developing them into an art, to afford the Turkish government the breathing and planning space it needed to invade Cyprus; to remain there; and then to advance further to consolidate militarily its territorial operation in order to effect partition politically. And this all happened in ‘thirty hot days’, as a prominent Turkish journalist put it.”


Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus: Diplomacy in the Eastern Mediterranean is available to purchase now in both hardback and paperback, please click here.
