Read full description of the books:



Since the ruins of vanished civilizations present puzzles that can never be fully solved, their presence remains a question. In the case of the Phoenicians, the principal traders and seamen of the ancient world, the mystery is especially intriguing, for such accounts of them as we have were written by others they encountered. And yet, though the defeat of Hannibal and the destruction of Carthage in the 2nd c BCE meant the end of their known presence, the fragmentary ruins of the cities they built along the Mediterranean shores show their extraordinary achievements. This book takes you to their cities, Leptis Magna, Timgad, Palmyra, and Petra, recreating a vivid picture of the Phoenians and their cities.

Read information about the author

Ebook Cities In The Sand read Online! Salvator Aubrey Clarence Menen was born in 1912 in London, of Irish and Indian parents. After attending University College, London he worked as a drama critic and a stage director. When World War II broke out, he was in India, where he organized pro-Allied radio broadcasts and edited film scripts for the Indian government. After the war ended, he returned to London to work with an advertising agency's film department, but the success of his first novel, The Prevalence of Witches (1947), induced him to take up writing full-time. Aubrey Menen’s writings, often satirical, explore the nature of nationalism and the cultural contrast between his own Irish–Indian ancestry and his traditional British upbringing. Apart from his novels and non-fiction works Menen wrote two autobiographies titled Dead Man in the Silver Market (1953) and The Space within the Heart (1970). He died in 1989 in Thiruvananthapuram.
