A great disappointment I wasn t expecting an academic tome but I was expecting a history of Sicily and the Sicilians Instead I found a frothy collection of anecdotes about the people who ruled or fought over the island For example the author refers several times to the agricultural system of latifundia which he implies has been disastrous from Roman times to the present day but despite the fact that presumably a very large proportion of Sicilians worked or work still he doesn t tell us on these estates there is no description of what they are or how they operate what effect they have on the lives of the people affected how or if they changed over time There s a similar dearth of information about urban development industry and governance I want to know about the life of the real Sicilians not the appearance and love lives of its numerous rulersIt s evident that the author loves Sicily and particularly its works of art and architecture and imagine that many who read the book are prompted by similar emotions and are reading the book in order to understand why they were created Me too However he sometimes lets this take over the narrative An example is the book s handling of the aftermath of the earthuake of 1690 which devastaed much of the SE corner of the island Norwich describes its impact but we get no picture of how it affected economic and social life and for how long how reonstruction was organised and paid for in an era long before states took responsibility for such matters Instead there are several pages of what amounts to a gazetteer about the rebuilt townsThe chapters that most irritated me most and which I found myself just skimming were those describing in detail the activities of non Sicilians Nelson Montgomery Patton who were involved with Sicily because of the world wars in which they were military leaders There are plenty of books about these wars What s important surely in a history of Sicily is the impact the wars had on the Sicilians I was really interested in the tale of US deals with the Mafia to ease the invasion of Sicily and would rather have known about the impact of this than about Monty and Patton s petty rivalries I was also very diappointed that the book pretty well stops after about 1950 I want to know about the last 70 yearsI gave it a second star because it s well written if you like your history to be kings and ueens and what they got up to Another Fine Mess: Across the USA in a Ford Model T yearsI gave it a second star because it s well written if Sept vies pour lalgerie (BAY.SPIRITUALIT) you like

The book is average in that it does not satisfy a readers curiosity about the island There was so much that was left out especially during World War 2 The author instead spends almost 80 pages on Englands Horatio Nelson s affair with Lady Hamilton And when dealing with the Sicilian bandit Salvatore Giuliano we get only 8 lines What the heck Not a bad book I guess A better book in the island is The Kingdom Of Sicily by the Sicilian historian Louis Mendola this is a much better read and Much informative and satisfying

    Free Sicily AUTHOR inspireconsulting.co.za – PDF EPUB This author has a lovely voice, but makes a lot of assumptions about your previous knowledge and he flies through way too much detail, so the major points don't stand out at all. I read the whole book and don't know a lot than when I started, except that the Sicilian people are basically ungovernable.
