Greek Book Publishing in a Time of Crisis

The Greek social and material crisis has forced many book stores and publishers to close while writers and readers are considering new political ideas. Some have decided to create their own self-organized publishing projects. Nikos Katsiaounis is a publisher that helped create such a project, Exarcheia Press. Journalist Chris Spannos traveled to Greece and interviewed Nikos about Greece’s modern book publishing history, the emergence of self-organized publishers and the effect of capitalist crisis. Chris interviewed Nikos in the office of Exarcheia Press, named after the central Athens radical district Exarcheia.
