Crooks in khaki examines the economic and social policy of the Greek military junta (1967-74), in order to deconstruct the urban legend of the so called “prosperity” of 1967-71. Through revealing statistics and carefully collected data, the author and successful journalist Dionysis Eleutheratos uncovers scandals of all kinds, unheard of loan scams, and the winners and losers of the period. A revealing book that adds to our understanding of the time, while setting aside all right-wing narratives about economic bloom during the junta.
