Summary"Until now, visitors have found themselves awash with information on classical, Roman, and Byzantine aspects of Greek history, but with no ready means to learn about the part played by Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Vlachs, and others. Salonika, for example, was virtually a Jewish city for four hundred years with as many as 32 synagogues, and yet several of the most popular guides to Greece do not even mention that fact, nor do they list the one remaining synagogue still there to be seen. It is hoped that this guide will help begin to fill that gap." —Preface
