In "Sydney", Jan Morris, one of the great historians and travelers of our time, penetrates the mysteries and complexities of this seductive city as only she can. Built upon a penal colony, its first citizens British criminals and wardens, "Sydney" is a city that bears the mark of its hard-knocks history. Morris brilliantly weaves the past out of the present, finding ghosts of the city's rebellious founders in the vibrancy and pluck of today's populace. Imagine a mix of brashness and worldly chic, good humor and jealousy, calm and aggression. Such is "Sydney", a wealth of contradiction. One thing is clear, though, and incontrovertible: Here is one of the most visually stunning cities in the world.
