Mazower Will Get the Dido Sotiriou Prize

The Hellenic Authors Society will be honoring British historian and Hellenist Mark Mazower with the Dido Sotiriou Award, at a ceremony to be held at the Athens Concert Hall, on Oct. 23 for his works that delve deeply into modern Greece.
Mazower is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and director of the Center for World History at Columbia University. His book Thessaloniki, City of Ghosts: Christians, Muslims and Jews, 1430-1950 was awarded the Duff Cooper Prize.
His other Greek books include After the War Was Over: Reconstructing the State, Family and the Law in Greece, 1943-1960, Inside Hitler’s Greece: the Experience of Occupation, 1941-1944, and Greece and the Inter-War Economic Crisis.
The award, established by society in memory of writer famed Dido Sotiriou, is presented to a foreign or Greek author whose writing highlights the interaction between people and cultures through cultural diversity.
After presentation of the award, Mazower will speak on the subject of Greece and the European crisis, with reference to a major European figure and leading politician of the European Union, Altiero Spinelli (1907-1986).
