It is clear that Benjamin Taylor loves the city of Naples and put a lot of time and effort into the writing of Naples Declared (sixteen years of research and eleven stays in Naples, to be exact). He does write with passion, and in a clear and concise way. Included at the back of the book is Taylor’s list of sources for the historical information contained in Naples Declared, and I think I’ll be looking into some of those books before I read this one again. If you’re interested in learning more about Naples, Italy, I do recommend Taylor’s well researched and thorough account–but if you’re not already somewhat familiar with European/Italian history, be prepared to do a little extra research of your own while you’re reading Naples Declared.
