Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0933452721, Hardcover)Meganisi is one of the smallest and most remote of the Greek Ionian Islands, but from another point of view it is the center of the world. Its sailors travel from China to Peru, and its migrants maintain familial connections from Johannesburg to Montreal. A Greek Island Cosmos reveals the historical dynamism of what appears at first sight to be a forgotten backwater. This detailed ethnographic study, written in an engaging and entertaining style, explores the basis on which the islanders’ solidarity and sense of identity are constructed and reconstructed despite population mobility and economic change.
