    1. A very dry history of Sicily. Interesting if you truly want to learn what the history of the island is, but I don't recommend it for enjoyable, leisure reading. The one good thing about the book though is that it is short. The author covers the history from the 11th century B.C. to present day in only 142 pages. So while it is dry, it is concise and to the point. Being called "An Illustrated History" though, it could definately use more actual illustrations.


    2. This is a mostly readable, but occassionally dry, concise history. Very misleading subtitle. There are very few illustrations and photos. However, I would recommend it to everyone who wants a comprehensive overview of the history of Sicily. It seems that there are not very many good (nonov-erly academic) books to choose from on this topic.
