Review by timjones
This is a fairly dry and academic - but nevertheless interesting - history of Iceland from the settlement era through to 2000. Having read about the sagas of the Settlement Era, I wanted something that would bring me up to date, and this book did that - although I would have liked more coverage of the environmental and ecological factors affecting Iceland during that time, which are alluded to but rarely addressed directly.
