About the Author

Brendan O'Malley is Foreign Editor of the Times Educational Supplement and Ian Craig is Political Editor of the Manchester Evening News.


"The Cyprus Conspiracy delivers new and damning detail on how the big powers (including good old "ethical" Britain) taught Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots not to live together." -Boyd Tonkin, The Guardian "O'Malley and Craig show how powerful and penetrating journalism can be by producing a book of high quality and academic value. This book fills a gap in the literature about Cyprus and the Cyprus problem, and will also be of interest to those working on the eastern Mediterranean, and on US and British foreign policy in the region." -Mediterranean Politics "A marvellous new book ... It is a fascinating story of international intrigue, espionage and intelligence, brilliantly and graphically told and it will open a lot of eyes of people who, until now, had no inkling - until today - about the real and intriguing reason behind the partition of Cyprus." -Chris Moncrieff, The House "This well written and well researched account of events provides the understanding of the situation and the causes, which led to the escalation of the crisis in 1974." -Konstantinos Kotzias, Contemporary Review "With diligent research and fluency, they chart the labyrinth behind what they conclude was an international plot." -Belfast Telegraph 'The book should be of value to those interested in coming to a deeper understanding of the complex issues surrounding Cyprus.' -Intelligence and National Security
