Florence: The Biography of a City
by Christopher Hibbert
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect if visiting the city of flowers, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly dated as finishes in 1966 but as a history/guidebook it cannot be beaten. Hibbert has a no-nonsense style with fluid, clear prose. Very readable and satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive account, 4 Nov 2004
Simply stated this book is immense. An unbiased account of one the most important historical figures of South America. Not only does Anderson provide an in-depth biography of Guevara but he also delves into the history of the time thus we get first rate writing on Khrushchev, Castro, the nuclear missile crisis, the bay of pigs. Also gives a great insight into the world of international ambassador's and diplomats and inner workings of the U.N and other international bodies. A book that cannot be praised enough.
