Syria: Through Writers' Eyes

by Marius Kociejowski (editor) - £12.99  Eland Publishing Ltd (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780907871842 | ISBN 10: 0907871844

The historical wealth of Syria is triumphantly visible and diverse. It is one of the best-kept secrets of the passionate Mediterranean traveller. That it is also a remarkably hospitable country, where the way of life is still intimately engaged with its own history, only serves to increase the pleasure.
For centuries, visitors have responded to the country with fascination. Here you will eavesdrop on William Dalrymple talking to hermits, hear Robin Fedden on Crusader Castles, follow T E Lawrence through Aleppo as well as reading the thoughts of Edward Gibbon, Hester Stanhope and Gertrude Bell amongst the ruins of Palmyra. Poet, travel-writer and antiquarian book-dealer Marius Kociejowski has poured his deep love, experience and absorption with Syria into this wide-ranging but exquisitely discriminating collection.
