This is a scholarly work . However this is NOT a history of Sicily or rather it is a history of ancient Sicily only . I suspect this text to have been written perhaps a 100 years ago or so hence the archaic style . If I am correct of course it rather limits the value of the text although if read with that in mind it is still useful . It lacks pagination , contents , publishing history , index and a biography of the author . It lacks maps and illustrations . It does not say where the interesting jacket photograph was taken . It does have a vast list of characters both persons and places making keeping track of events challenging . Overall this is probably a book for the specialist .

3.0 out of 5 stars There was a great deal of minutia in the early history of Sicily 19 Oct. 2014
By V in Mass. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was definitely a slog to get thru. There was a great deal of minutia in the early history of Sicily, the Greek settlement, the trading posts of the Phonecians, the incursions of the Catheginians, all the wars. I learned more about the Peloponnesian wars than I cared to know. Learned a lot, but l think what l truly am interested in is more of the cultural and ethnic history of Sicily than this book had to offer. It was touched on a bit at the end but not enough for my interest. The author also assumes that the reader has more knowledge about this era than this reader possesses.
