Informal history of Ibiza, from is beginning as an island renowned for it’s fertility to…oh well, some things never change. Armstrong’s journalistic turn of phrase helps some of the more boring points in history roll along, and it’s interesting to see the ‘clubber’s paradise’ from the perspective of the embittered locals. Good beach read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0552771899, Paperback)

Full of legend and myth, the history of the Spanish island of Ibiza is the story of invasions and migrations. Today it is a haven for the persecuted and home to the hedonists who gather to revel in long, golden summers.
