Chapter Summary

Cyprus is an island of some 3,600 square miles in a strategic location at the crossroads of three continents in the eastern Mediterranean. The majority population has coexisted with minority communities, the largest of which is that of the Turkish Cypriots, most of whose ancestors arrived on the island after the Ottomans conquered Venetian-controlled Cyprus in 1571. An International Relations Debacle is a significant contribution to the understanding of the Cyprus problem in terms of both international politics and international law. This reviewer, on the basis of long experience, is of the conviction that, given a minimum of political goodwill, the problem is capable of a compromise solution, provided that such a solution is functional and not incompatible with the applicable rules of international law; there is much more that unites all Cypriots than the differences that at present divide them.
