Eight of his books have been translated into Greek, two into English and one into Turkish. Since 1994, he and Professor Reinhard Stupperich have been working on the scholarly journal “THETIS,” that discusses Greek and Cypriot affairs from archaeology to current events.
In 1997, they published a monograph series called “PELEUS” which follows the same interdisciplinary concept. At the moment, Richter is working on the second volume of a concise history of Greece during the years 1939-2004.
