Still the Cicadas Sing: A Boy Comes of Age in Nazi Occupied Athens

Alkinoos, an Athenian boy, is growing up in the shadow of Parthenon, in his own innocent world. It is the 1930s and Greece is ruled by the dictator Ioannis Metaxas. In October 1940 Mussolini demands passage of his armies through Greece. Metaxas refuses and Italy declares war. The Greeks are victorious, pushing the Italians back. Seeing his Axis ally Mussolini humiliated, Hitler invades Greece. The dreamy world of Alkinoos turns into one of brutal occupation, of famine and executions. This is a story of the boy's coming of age, of romance with the enemy, a German girl, a Circe with violet eyes. It is a story of things that are not what they seem to be. Of daring undertakings under the nose of the Gestapo, of Odyssean heroism, wiliness and wisdom...and of eventual tragedy. An ancient Hellenic world of pathos and nobleness revisited and relived. Still the Cicadas Sing is the story of a boy's spirited survival within a world of darkness and pervading death. It is a literary novel that will take the reader on a fascinating journey in Nazi occupied Athens, blending the history of Greece of that period, a little known chapter of the War, with adolescent love, with passion and intrigue.

The International Liposome Society Print E-mail



From fundamental biophysical studies to models of cell membranes, delivery systems for vaccines or anticancer therapeutics to non-viral gene therapy vectors, and photosynthetic bioreactors to microenvironments simulating the origin of cellular organization, liposomes and non-lipid vesicles constitute an established, yet one of the most versatile, fields of science.


The International Liposomes Society aims to provide a forum for all those interested in the science of liposomes and vesicles and a focal point for the diverse number of disciplines and researchers developing or using liposomes and vesicles.

Liposome Evolution Print E-mail

Lipid bilayers have been known for decades, often described and referred to as black lipid films, Liposomes in the sense of closed, lipid bilayer vesicles were described for the first time in the seminal paper by Bangham, Standinsh, and Watkins in 1965. Since then liposome technologies have rapidly evolved to systems employed in a wide variety of applications. Below are the most important milestones in the process of liposome evolution:
