This long essay provides a non-partisan approach to the Cyprus issue, that goes beyond the conservative perceptions of certain ruling elites on the island and their NATO masters, which are historically responsible for the division of Cyprus today. It argues that it is high time now, with the advent to power of two Left-wing parties on both sides of the Green Line, to launch an anti-imperial dialogue in order to initiate a post-imperial Constitutional process immune from great power engineering. This is a feasible undertaking, not least because the Republic of Cyprus is a member of the EU, but not a member of NATO. In other words, this short,accessible book aims at reviving, quite unashamedly and in a theoretically and historically informed way, the spirit of the tradition of Dervis Ali Kavatzoglou and Constantine Misiaoulis, popular symbols of a united, democratic and independent Cyprus.

• Key text for anyone interested in the Cyprus question.
• Argues that the Cypriot constitution should be decided by the Cypriot people.
• Short, accesible, and reasonably priced.
• One of very few books on the subject.

Vassilis K. Fouskas teaches international relations at Piraeus University. His grandparents were Greeks from the Western Asia Minor cities of Ayvalik and Edremit. In 1922 they moved to the island of Lesvos, following the aborted Anglo-Greek attempt to eradicate Turkey and Islam fom Anatolia. Vassilis has thus grown up in a refugee family environment which, fortunately for him, praised the friendship of Turkish and Greek peoples while damning Western imperialism. Vassilis' work has been translated into more than ten languages.

Alex O. Tackie, of Ghanaian origin, teaches economics at Kingston University. The London Borough of Harringey, with its large and vibrant Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities is where he lived and went to school during the time of turmoil on the island. His outsider's perspective on the partition of Cyprus was sharpened in these surroundings. He has collaborated before on published work on Greece and Cyprus.
