Greeks in the Far Orient

Document Type


Publication Date



After his valuable work on Greek emigration to Australia, New Zealand and Latin America, Anastasios Tamis has now focussed on the Far East, for which primary sources are comparatively scarce. Using interviews and oral histories, as well as Greek diplomatic archives and, through translators, Chinese and Japanese official sources, he has compiled a history of Greeks in China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. The book is described by Professor Speros Vryonis Jr as ‘a major contribution to the historical experience of the Greek people in one of its most dynamic expressions: seafaring and emigration’.
