How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

Greek Cypriot Press

Postby jeuneturc » Fri Aug 27, 2004 5:59 am

Hello,

I really would appreciate if anyone can help me about the history of the Greek Cypriot press. I am working on my thesis and have a chapter about the birth of the Turkish Cypriot press. I also would like to add a comperative section if can find more info on the Greek Cypriot press of that time (late 1800s, early 1900's). Unfortunately, till now I could find nothing except the names of the papers published in Greek.

Thanx,
jtc

Its going to be hard to find such information online and in English.
Some books exist about the topic, but they are in Greek.

Sometimes newspapers give out CD-ROMS and I belive in the past they gave something like their hisotry on a CD-ROM, maybe you can find it from somewhere, but again it will probably be in Greek.

Here is a quick look at the limassol press history. Its in Greek, but maybe you can figure out the names and the publication years.

Those with more specialize research interest are directed to the huge collections of primary sources available at the Public Record Office in Kew Gardens, London, the Cyprus State Archives in Nicosia, the Turkish Cypriot Archives in Kyrenia, the UN documents, and USA government records. Statistic, demographic, economic, social and legislative information is available from a number of annual publications begun by the British colonial government in 1878-80 and often continued after the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus in 1960. These include the Cyprus Gazette (1978-1960; 1960-), the Cyprus Blue Books (1880-1946), the Cyprus Annual Reports (1879-1961), the Cyprus Law Reports (1883-1960; 1960-), the Minutes of the Legislative Council (1878-1931), and the Minutes of the House of Representatives (1960-). Also available are specialized reports and annual publications -- too numerous to list here -- published since 1960 by the Statistics and Research Department of the Republic of Cyprus. A large number of newspapers published since 1878 in Greek, Turkish and English can be found at the Public Information Office in Nicosia.


you can send a mail to PIO(pio.gov.cy) and request more info...

Thank you both for taking the time and answering.

I have not yet decided about the title of my thesis yet, but it is about the "political history and culture of the Turkish Cypriot community" starting from the colonial times till now.

If you have any suggestions or anything to add/comment on, it would be greatly appreciated.

Have a nice weekend.
