Interview with Mark Mazower about his book The Greek Revolution: 1821 and the Making of Modern Europe. Discusses the Greek war of independence against the Ottoman Empire; its post-Napoleonic context; the divisions within the Greek side, the incompetence of the Ottoman response; Lord Byron and the engagement of public opinion in the West; and its sudden end after a combined British, Russian and French flotilla wiped out the Ottoman fleet.
