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 .

Dry and disappointing! Too academic with no strong narrative.

This book can be easily understood by a reader today and worthwhile for those who want to learn about the foundation of the island.

OK as far as it goes. It stops very early in history however.

HASH(0x9a5bc66c) 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.

the book was written for people that were born in that time zone and not for today's readers

I could not understand anything
