A Traveller's History of Cyprus

A Traveller's History of Cyprus offers a complete and authoritative history of the island's past and also touches on the sensitive present-day issues for both sides of the island. Although Cyprus is a relatively small island, its position in the East Mediterranean has always given it strategic importance beyond its size. Well-placed for travel from all over the globe with plenty of sunshine throughout the year, Cyprus has become a favored tourist destination. All visitors, whether to the Greek or Turkish side of the island, discover the immensely rich history, which has resulted in so many civilizations making their mark upon its soil. With a historical gazetteer, chronology of major events, index, bibliography and historical and contemporary maps, this book is an invaluable companion to students or visitors to the island.

Timothy Boatswain is Pro-Vice Chancellor at the University of Luton. His degrees are in archaeology and anthropology. He is a committee member of the Association for Cypriot Greek and Turkish Affairs, which is an academic society dedicated to bringing the two communities together. He regularly gives lectures on the island both in the UK and Cyprus. He is co-author of 'A Traveller's History of Greece' and is about to publish 'The Political Culture of Cyprus' later this year to join his three publications about Cyprus. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
