Historic Nicosia is the first comprehensive and scholarly history of the capital of Cyprus - from the earliest times until the island's independence in 1960. Leading historians and academics guide the reader through the major epochs, drawing on classic sources as well as the latest scholarship emanating from the study of ancient documents and archaeological discoveries. Each chapter contains a rich section of colour and black-and-white photographs, maps and illustrations, some published here for the first time.
Historic Nicosia, in short, is the definitive history of the capital of Cyprus.
