BeschreibungAfter successive waves of rulers throughout history, Crete has served as a crossroads where the Eastern and Western worlds have met and exchanged skills and ideas, materials and artifacts, and acquired layered strata of history unlike any other land. That history is explored in this collection through the writings of various travelers from around the world. This is the first of three illustrated books that will span the great island from east to west.
PortraitJohan de Bakker is a writer specialising in the Middle East and North Africa who has travelled extensively in Crete since the 1970s and studied its history in the early Modern Age
