Alexandria: Past, Present and Future

Voorkant
Thames & Hudson, 2002 - 159 pagina's
Created 2,300 years ago through the wish of Alexander the Great, Alexandria is still the largest city in the Mediterranean world. It evokes a succession of images - the Tomb of Alexander, the Pharos, the Library, Antony and Cleopatra, Cavafy and Lawrence Durrell, all reminders of its magnificence and cultural influence. Over the centuries it has known many reverses. In 1820, with the advent of Mohammed Ali, it began to reawaken, and became a model of cosmopolitanism of which many still regret the passing.
