This chapter examines the impact of British relations with Greece on the revolt in Cyprus. It describes the British reaction to the Egyptian government's nationalization of the Suez Canal Company and explains the link between the Suez crisis and Cyprus. This chapter suggests that the Anglo–Greek rivalry had superimposed upon it a polarization between Greeks and Turks with far greater potential for bringing Cyprus to the edge of chaos.
