5.0 out of 5 stars In the Shadow of Vesuvius, July 19 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: In the Shadow of Vesuvius: A Cultural History of Naples (Hardcover)
Congratulations to the author (Jordan Lancaster) who has filled an important gap with her cultural history of Naples! Books about Rome, Venice and Florence are legion but Naples, until now, has been sadly under-represented. This well-researched yet slender volume is a must-have for Italophiles everywhere. The fascinating story of this city of great contrasts will draw you in to a world of mythical and historical figures each playing a part against the magnificent backdrop of a menacing volcano.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Shadow of Vesuvius, July 19 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: In the Shadow of Vesuvius: A Cultural History of Naples (Hardcover)
Long fascinated by the story of Pompeii and curious about the nearby city of Naples, I have finally found a book that is both informative and delightful to read. The author of the well-researched "In the Shadow of Vesuvius" takes us in a most engaging way through the history of Naples and the surrounding area from the classical myths to the present day. A must have for Italophiles!
