About this book

Blends the thrill of scientific discovery with a popular presentation of the geology, archaeology, history, peoples and environmental setting of Santorini, scene of one of the most cataclysmic explosions witnessed by man.
`...Santorini exploded in 1600 BC producing one of the largest explosions ever witnessed by humans. The story of why it blew - and the consequences - is superbly detailed and illustrated in Friedrich's book.' Douglas Palmer, Focus Magazine
