An FSU alumnus, Dr. Anastasakis is an independent scholar who specializes in twentieth century Balkan history, World War II, collaboration and resistance in times of war, and church-state relations. His recently published book, The Church of Greece under Axis Occupation, represents an intersection of these interests. He earned his BA and MA in history from Florida State University and his PhD in modern European history from the University of Minnesota. Currently teaching at The City College of New York, he is also in the preliminary stages of a study that examines how the Church of Greece responded to the economic, political, and social troubles in Greece during the interwar period, including the Greek-Turkish population exchange, the rise of communism and fascism, and the Great Depression.
