Joseph Jay Deiss was vice-director of the American Academy in Rome and has written several historical novels and biographies. He is the author of Herculaneum: Italy's Buried Treasure, also published by the Getty Museum.
Pompeii receives all the popular attention as a buried city after a volcano's eruption, but Herculaneum, a small Italian resort town, was also consumed by lava. Numerous photos of the towns' restored villas and interiors are included in Deiss' recreation of daily life in the town. College-level students of archaeology, architecture and history will relish this account. -- Midwest Book Review
