The 'Cyprus Problem' - also known as the Cyprus dispute, Cyprus issue, Cyprus question or Cyprus conflict - is an ongoing dispute between Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots, Greece and Turkey. It has bedeviled not only their relations, but also those within the European Union, NATO, and the United Nations for more than 60 years. Following a long insurgency against British colonial rule - the so-called 'Cyprus Emergency' - Cyprus gained independence in 1960. Almost instantly, high tensions emerged between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. A complex set of constitutional provisions and international treaties designed to safeguard the new state, and countless attempts to resolve the conflict through diplomacy failed. On the contrary, in 1963-1964, the repeated attempts to solve the disputes failed and fighting erupted between the communities in Nicosia, that soon spread across the rest of the island. As the power-sharing government collapsed, and additional peace-making efforts failed, in 1967 the conflict escalated into armed violence again, this time with the involvement of the Greek and Turkish armed forces. Subsequently, the situation was only made worse, culminating in the Greek coup d'état and the Turkish invasion of 1974. Positioning this conflict within its historical context, Ripped Apart offers an inclusive, incisive, even-handed, and a richly illustrated account of the military history of Cyprus since independence. Beginning with the tensions that emerged between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots through the 1960s, leading to the events that resulted in the series of bitter armed clashes of 1967, and then the Turkish invasion of 1974, Ripped Apart helps to provide a better understanding of a highly controversial conflict. AUTHORS: Tom Cooper is an Austrian aerial warfare analyst and historian. Following a career in worldwide transportation business - during which he established a network of contacts in the Middle East and Africa - he moved into narrow-focus analysis and writing on small, little-known air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives. This has resulted in specialization in such Middle Eastern air forces as of those of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, plus various African and Asian air forces. Except for authoring and co-authoring more than 30 books - including about a dozen of titles for Helion's @War series - and over 1000 articles, Cooper is a regular correspondent for multiple defense-related publications. John David Watson is an experienced public affairs professional, having written many media columns, and appeared on the TV and radio, and, as military historian wrote for a number of magazines, journals, and a contributing author to several books. He is the editor of the website Balkan Military History, and runs a regular blog, Balkandave.blogspot.com. He has covered the military history of the Balkans for over 22 years, building up a large following in the social media.
