Subtitle of the book:
"A testimony of the political action of the Greek patriots in its internationalist dimension" The meaning of the work collected in this booklet is described in the title page and it's singular that in the seventies in Italy we were concerned with the political problems of Greece and that to publish this book, with images and the chronicle of political events of the twentieth century, was a Political Section of an Italian Party. Obviously this is a book with a propaganda flavor and its communication serves more to forge the new generation than to support Greek activism, but there are elements that belong to a period in which the transmission of thought took place in a widespread and a book was the place where you could tell the events in depth, take political action. Now as well as being a valid documentation and testimony of the Greek struggle for freedom (Greece was in 1974 under the dictatorship of the Colonels which began in 1967 with a coup d'etat) I don't know how valid the text can be from a historical point of view. However it remains an important and singular book in its construction.
