Cypriot politics are among the most contentious in Europe, and frequently attract the attention of the international community. Here, Yiannos Katsourides traces the historical development of the Cypriot party system, and in particular the growth of the Communist Party, now known as AKEL - the first formally organized political party on the island. Under the British Empire, the party was illegal, but continued to struggle for Cypriot independence until this was achieved in 1960. Based on new archival research, Katsourides addresses the social, religious, economic and political environment in which communist and working class politics existed on the island, and locates them within the context of a country connected inextricably with Turkey, Great Britain and Greece. This book will be of significant interest to anyone interested in the history of Cyprus, European communist movements or British colonialism and diplomacy in the Mediterranean.

This book provides a comparative analysis of how two radical left parties achieved government participation and their subsequent political experiences. In the face of the most severe and most prolonged crisis in the history of capitalism, it would be expected for radical left parties to seize the opportunity to promote their political agenda. Although reality has often confounded prognosis, two particular radical left parties – the Greek SYRIZA and the Cypriot AKEL – were elected to the highest government office. The author uses these two examples to engage with the broader question of what to expect when left-wing radicals achieve governance. This question is now of particular importance given the emergence of radical leftists in other parts of Europe, including Corbyn in the UK and Podemos in Spain.

This book analyzes the events that impacted the structure and competitive processes of the two dominant Cypriot political factions while under the watchful eye of British rule. Based on new archival research, Alecou addresses the social and political environment in which the Cypriot Communists and Nationalists fought each other while at the same time had to fight the British Empire. The differences between communists and nationalists brought the two sides to a frontal collision in the wake of the events of the Greek civil war. The class conflict within Cypriot society would at some point inevitably lead, in one way or another, to a clash between the two factions. The civil war in Greece constituted another field of conflict between Left and Right, accelerating the formation of a bipolar party system in which the vertical division of the Greek community in Cyprus eventually expressed itself.

The island of Cyprus has been bitterly divided for more than four decades. One of the most divisive elements of the Cyprus conflict is the writing of its history, a history called on by both communities to justify and explain their own notions of justice. While for Greek Cypriots the history of Cyprus begins with ancient Greece and Hellenistic culture, for the Turkish Cypriot community the history of the island begins with the Ottoman invasion of 1571. The singular narratives both sides often employ to tell the story of the island are, as this volume argues, a means of continuing the battle which has torn the island apart, and an obstacle to resolution. The Cyprus Conflict and History re-orientates history-writing on Cyprus from a tool of division to a form of dialogue, and explores a way forward for the future of conflict resolution in the region.

The end of World War II intensified Morocco's nationalist struggle against French colonial rule, with the establishment of the Istiqlal (independence) party and the Moroccan Sultan's emergence as a national leader. These developments, however, were not a linear process that ended with the party securing a prominent political position. The Emergence of Nationalist Politics in Morocco presents a far more turbulent portrayal, with its detailed account of the Istiqlal's emergence in the 1940s. It provides an in-depth study of the rise of Morocco's leading nationalist party, along with a focus on the weakness of Moroccan political parties, evident already in the early years of the struggle against French colonialism._x000D_ _x000D_ Drawing on a wide range of previously unpublished Moroccan, French and American sources, Daniel Zisenwine presents the background to the party's establishment, its initial actions and demands, and an extensive discussion of its social activities aimed at mobilizing the Moroccan public in the anti-colonial struggle. Combining a social and political history of the Istiqlal, he examines the party's relationship with the Moroccan Sultan and analyzes the Moroccan monarchy's position. The book's later chapters focus on the French decision to exile the Moroccan Sultan in 1953, in an effort to quell the rising nationalist sentiment. This event was a turning point in Moroccan nationalist politics, unleashing widespread public anger. By that time, the Istiqlal had emerged as the leading nationalist political organization, but remained subordinate to the monarchy's leadership, even as it continued to shape Moroccan politics._x000D_ _x000D_ The Emergence of Nationalist Politics in Morocco offers new insights on the roots of contemporary Morocco's peculiar political tradition, which underscores the monarchy's centrality. It offers answers and approaches to scholars, students, and the general reader interested in international politics, the Maghreb, and particularly the inner workings of this pivotal North African kingdom.
