This archival issue is entirely devoted to the text Terrorism in Cyprus, which has been out of print since being first published in 1956 by the Secretary of State for the Colonies. Terrorism in Cyprus is a compilation of documents that includes extracts from Grivas' Diary, the correspondence between Grivas and the EOKA organization, and the explanatory notes of the Colonial Office on these exposed documents. Doubtless, it is an important document from the modern history of Cyprus and surely needs to be read carefully. A short introduction by Jan Asmussen provides information on the content, intent and importance of the document. As these are "selected" extracts--and when seen necessary even commented on in italics in the text--they are partial but nonetheless shed light on the colonial policies of the British and, to a certain extent, reveal Grivas' mind and the dealings of the EOKA during a particularly stressful period. The translator of the documents is unknown. The text has been carefully edited in order to remain as faithful as is practically possible both to its first layout and to the language of the document. One major difference is that the photos are not included in this edition due to problems of their quality of resolution. For the sake of accuracy and future scholarship mistakes in place-names and personal-names appear as they did in the original document. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Jan Asmussen who contributed valuable time and expert knowledge to this project. As usual we would also like to thank the Center of Cyprus Studies and the staff of the Eastern Mediterranean University Printing House.
