Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author's own survey work and the latest first-hand information. Although much of the new material affects the Ionian and southeastern Aegean, this new edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide. The redrawn and amended plans and new photographs, many of which have been taken from the air, complement the revisions in the text, refreshing this work which is now in its eleventh edition. The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot's status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece. 'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell's enviable experience of Greek cruising.?' Royal Cruising Club 'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become 'the bible' for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association '... his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it's with justification that they are often referred to as 'the bible'.'

Like its companions, West Aegean and East Aegean, Ionian contains detailed information on many of the smaller harbours and anchorages which cannot be covered as comprehensively in Rod Heikell's major guide, Greek Waters Pilot. These handy cruising companions are ideal for charterers and flotilla sailors who are in the area for a short time but to make the best of it need all the essential background information on places to visit, history, food and travelling in Greece at their fingertips. Cruisers on their own yachts will also find much of interest and additional pilotage when cruising in the area.Ionian covers the coasts and islands south from Corfu, southwards to Finakounda and eastwards to Mesolongion. Ionian is essential on-board reference.This new 9th edition has been revised thoroughly throughout. The authors have updated the text and plans, and added lively new photographs. 'Heikell¿s style is easy to digest and gives pleasure in the details of the history, geography and social circumstances of the places described as well as the essential sailing information.' The Little Ship'This book, as well as being a practical manual on Ionian cruising, seems to have absorbed much of the author's personal feelings regarding the charm which draws him back to it, and any reader who has had a whiff of the magic spell of the Greek islands will sense this, and inevitably renew the resolve to return and experience it once again in greater measure.' Nautical Magazine'Rod Heikell nowadays is to the Mediterranean as gin is to tonic. It is difficult to imagine sailing there without one of his guides. Clear pilot notes, chartlets and plentiful illustrations, with entertaining commentaries on each place. Up-to-date observations on local and national regulations. The new edition does not disappoint. If one must choose, I would have no hesitation in recommending Heikell.' Cruising Association'Rod has a knack for dropping in snippets of interest and colour to give the reader a feel for the atmosphere of each port or bay.' Yachting Monthly'Like all Rod Heikell's pilots, it is also a travel guide in its own right.' Ionian Magazine'The sailing directions are particularly useful when entering the smaller anchorages and harbours, for which little information is to be found on charts, and include excellent harbour plans and top quality aerial photographs.'

Maritime Networks in the Mycenaean World

Author: Thomas F. Tartaron

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1107067138

Category: Social Science

Page: N.A

View: 311

In this book, Thomas F. Tartaron presents a new and original reassessment of the maritime world of the Mycenaean Greeks of the Late Bronze Age. By all accounts a seafaring people, they enjoyed maritime connections with peoples as distant as Egypt and Sicily. These long-distance relations have been celebrated and much studied; by contrast, the vibrant worlds of local maritime interaction and exploitation of the sea have been virtually ignored. Dr Tartaron argues that local maritime networks, in the form of 'coastscapes' and 'small worlds', are far more representative of the true fabric of Mycenaean life. He offers a complete template of conceptual and methodological tools for recovering small worlds and the communities that inhabited them. Combining archaeological, geoarchaeological and anthropological approaches with ancient texts and network theory, he demonstrates the application of this scheme in several case studies. This book presents new perspectives and challenges for all archaeologists with interests in maritime connectivity.

Greece is a source of linguistic and literary tradition that spans millennia and two of its writers have been awarded Nobel Prizes for Literature within the last thirty years. The proverbial crossroads of civilisations, religions and continents, Greece has also nurtured an adventurous, risk-taking, seafaring people who now control the largest merchant fleet in the world. Having become involved in all the major 20th-century European conflicts and having suffered severely from the self-inflicted wounds of a devastating civil war, Greece has emerged as a modern European nation and a full member of international bodies such as the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This fully revised bibliography updates the 1979 edition, and includes entries on the most important publications on Greece in the English language published between 1980 and 1997. It will be of use to the millions of people who visit Greece every year as well as to researchers and librarians.

Jason Manolopoulos lends a unique perspective, based on experience of the global financial system, emerging markets and crises, European politics and Greek society, to demonstrate how one of the EU’s smaller countries played a catalytic role in a crisis that threatens the future of the euro, and possibly even of the European Union itself. He digs beneath the headline economic data to explore the historical legacy and psychological biases that have shaped an ongoing political drama, in a book that has profound implications for our understanding of economics, as well as the policy choices for Europe’s elite.

The first part of the book examines the West Indies on the eve of emancipation in 1830; the second explores the politics and society of the islands during the period 1830-1865, a key passage in West Indian history. Professor Green presents a clear general picture of the sugar colonies, and places British governmental policy towards the region in the context of Victorian attitudes towards colonial questions. His lucid and comprehensive account is an important contribution to Caribbean history.
