The excerpts from writings through the ages creates an atmospheric vision of the historical and cultural features of this fascinating island. Horatio Clare expertly links these writings from the time of the Greeks, Arabs, Romans, Normans, Spanish and British with his own perceptive insights and deep knowledge and love of Sicily. The book reveals more of the true nature of the island than any guidebook can do.

I really think the writings here do depict the ancient culture that was once the great Sicily; albeit there is a shortage of a more contemporary analysis, but for the size and scope of the book it is worth a read.

This book wasn't available for lending from the Royal Geographical Society library - was for reference only. Took it to Sicily on holiday where it proved to be an excellent reading and reference choice.
