Mohammed Elrazzaz, The Mediterranean: A Shared Heritage

About the book

More than just a book about the Mediterranean, this is a work for the Mediterranean and its people. It celebrates the Mediterranean’s rich history, culture and heritage by presenting some of the region’s most captivating stories: historical anecdotes, unlikely encounters, icons of cultural dialogue and elements of tangible and intangible heritage; all made accessible to readers of all backgrounds.

A Mediterranean odyssey in time and space, the book takes us not only to cities, islands, monuments and archaeological sites, but also to places in the mind and to living traditions that hold the key to understanding the depth of our shared culture and the sophisti- cation of our human condition in this enchanted part of the world.

Technical description: Soft cover, “French flap” style | 214 pages | Colour photos
