Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

Charmed for decades by the music of Oscar-winning Greek composer Mános Hadjidákis, David Cade explores Athens as news breaks at the end of 2009 that Greece is in serious financial difficulty. After years in the neighbouring Middle East, the author talks to Athenians, examines many of the city’s most extraordinary attractions, and carefully surveys key aspects of Greece’s modern history. The result is both a thrilling account of what makes Athens tick and a vivid explanation of why Greece is as it is today. Widely researched and full of fascinating detail, ‘Athens - The Truth’ offers both a gripping read for the armchair traveller at home and a rich alternative to the traveller’s traditional guidebook.

David Cade has worked in classical record production, universities, and theatre. He has an MA in Linguistics from the University of London.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Travel Writing Done Right 6 de abril de 2017

I just finished David Cade's wonderful book about Athens. It passed the test of a great book as I was sorry to see it end. He is a wonderful writer and this book should be the standard model for all future travel writing. I recently returned from Greece and observed many of the contradictions Mr. Cade writes about. From the horrendous traffic, to the graffiti, to the litter everywhere, it was easy to be disappointed .And yet, I fell in love with the magnificent beauty of this country and its wonderful people. I hope Greece can get its many challenges in order. Thank you David Cade for this book about Athens.

I am a regular traveler, so reading books about capital cities and cultural oddities is quite normal for me. However, there is usually a choice made by an author, either to have a book be informational, historical, tourist-y, etc. It is difficult to explain the economic and social constructs that have been broken down in recent years, resulting in the modern day Athens you may see, while simultaneously explaining the political history of the nation and outlining the most important areas to see in terms of political history, all without sounding like a cheesy guidebook or a boring lecturer in an auditorium. That ability to blend his knowledge with practical applications for travelers or info-hounds alike is what made the book so good. He is clearly a passionate traveler and someone who knows how to "see". He keeps his eyes opens, draws connections, makes inferences, does his due diligence, and then creates a story that is relevant, packed with data, and historically/socially conscious. I have been to Athens, and seeing that city through Cade's eyes was remarkable. I want to go back and see if I can even get close to his experience of that wonderful place. A fascinating read for anyone, whether you backpack the globe or haven't ever left your county - it's a book about how the world has changed, a concept that everyone can understand.

David Cade has done exceptional work in creating this book. Set out in the first person, and sometimes feeling almost like a novel, his chapters take you through much of the history of modern Greece. I've learned so much from this book, it has been unbelievable. If you're someone interested in Greece or even researching the history of Greece (both its past and modern history) you're likely to benefit greatly from this work. "Athens - The Truth" represents a 50-year journey on the part of the author and it's packed with information. I highly recommend it.

5.0 de 5 estrelas I've waited for a book like this for 20 years! 28 de outubro de 2013

I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down and really didn't want it to end.
I really loved the way it was structured and how it seamlessly intertwined the author's amazing story and uplifting experiences with Greece's history and culture, putting it all into today's context. Absolutely addictive!

The author has brilliantly captured and understood the heart, mind and soul of not only the Athenians but also of Greeks both in Greece and the diaspora.
As I said earlier I've waited for a book like this for 20 years! Thank you!
5.0 de 5 estrelas Superb book for insiders and for all those who goes for the first time to Athens 19 de novembro de 2014

David I have finally finished your book Athens: the truth. Superb, magnificent and so true. I have more to say about the book and I will do that in a short while. I put my comments and reflections in Dutch, and afterwards I will translate those with Bing in English. I have enjoy it from the first to the last page. It's not only enjoyable for the people who goes for the fist time to Athens, but also for me and others who have been in Athens many more times. There is so much in your book, it's a must read!!!!
