Greeks in the Far East: A Remarkable History


Greeks in the Far Orient, is a 698-page volume written by Professor Anastasios M. Tamis, containing 420 unpublished photographs, depicting Greek immigration and settlement in the Far East.

In his preface to the book, now available in English, Professor Spiros Vryonis, writes that the primary aim of the publication is to narrate and analyze the history of Greek and Cypriot settlement in countries of the Far Orient and China, Japan, Korea, and the Philippines from 1875 to date.

Professor Tamis, University of Notre Dame, Australia, conducted his research for over five years (2005 – 2010), covering twelve countries. The author and his team of researchers identified, categorized, documented and analyzed thousands of documents and collected over 2,000 photographs (1890-2010).

They held over 400 interviews with important Diaspora figures, pioneer settlers and their descendants, in their host countries, resulting in over 3,000 pages of oral history. An official presentation of the book in Australia is scheduled for November 4, followed by presentations in China, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, U.S.A. and Canada.
