In "Out of the Balkans," family and ancestors spring alive from the pages in images and language. It contains a wealth of information about Greek colonies of the Diaspora, and the lives of early twentieth century Greek immigrants to the United States. Rarely does a well-researched and finely written account like this surface. Researchers with Greek-speaking ancestors from Bulgarian Greek colonies or Macedonia, areas whose histories are filled with conflict and struggle during this last century, will find this superb text especially helpful. Because genealogical resources (in English or Greek) for research in Hellenic ancestry are so sparse, finding extensive background information about Greek-speaking peoples from northern areas of the Balkans, particularly Bulgaria, is invaluable.
Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this book describes the social security regime in Greece. It conveys a clear working knowledge of the legal mechanics affecting health care, employment injuries and occupational diseases, incapacity to work, pensions, survivors’ benefits, unemployment benefits and services, and family benefits. The analysis covers the field of application, conditions for entitlement, calculation of benefits, financing, the institutional framework, and relevant law enforcement and controls. Allowances for retirees, employees, public sector workers, the self-employed, and the handicapped are all clearly explained, along with full details of claims, adjudication procedures, and appeals. Succinct yet eminently practical, the book will be a valuable resource for lawyers handling social security matters in Greece. It will be of practical utility to those both in public service and private practice called on to develop and to apply social security law and policy, and of special interest as a contribution to the comparative study of social security systems.
