"Violence in the Greek Civil War" In this lecture Prof. Stathis Kalyvas discussed his attempts to explore the tremendous variation in violence across similar social landscapes in the context of the Greek Civil War. His work examines new research and combines both oral histories and written sources from both southern and northern Greece. Professor Kalyvas is the author of The Rise of Christian Democracy in Europe (1996), recipient of the J. David Greenstone Prize and is currently working on a book manuscript, "The Logic of Violence in Civil War." He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1993 and has taught in the Political Science departments at Ohio State University and New York University. This event was co-sponsored by the Department of History.
