''Of the hot guides at the `Cyprus Problem', `Divided Cyprus' ranks among the simplest. it's scholarly, rather well conceived, properly based, and expertly finished. most significantly, it truly is concept upsetting. I hugely suggest it to any critical pupil of Cyprus' prior and current, and to these attracted to its destiny progress.'' -- The Cyprus evaluation, Vol. 18:2, Fall 2006

''[U]shers the reader into the complexities of the specific ambiguity of Cyprus [and] . . . concentrates . . . at the useless area of the divided society, within the cultural area the place those that refuse to visit the poles gather.'' - -Anastasia Karakasidou, Wellesley collage
