About the Book

Few countries and continents tell more stories than this tiny town- - of Chinese sailors, Arab traders, Jewish merchants and European conquests set against a backdrop all of one square mile, chronicles that clash as vehemently as the protagonists once did.

Captured here are 135 sketches and a commentary that navigates you as you walk across half – a – millennium in half – day.
