I don't think the publisher has been mentioned. Will it be possible to get

> New essays on the varied history of Egypt?s second city
> Alexandria Real and Imagined offers a complex portrait of an extraordinary 
> city, from its foundation in the fourth century BC up to the present day: 
> a city notable for its history of ethnic diversity, for the legacies of 
> its past imperial grandeur?Ottoman and Arab, Byzantine, Roman and 
> Greek?and, not least, for the memorable images of ?Alexandria? constructed 
> both by outsiders and by inhabitants of the city. In this volume of new 
> essays, Alexandria and its many images?the real and the imagined?are 
> illuminated from a rich variety of perspectives. These range from art 
> history to epidemiology, from social and cultural analysis to re-readings 
> of Cavafy and Callimachus, from the impressions of foreign visitors to the 
> evidence of police records, from the constructions of Alexandria in 
> Durrell and Forster to those in the twentieth-century Arabic novel.
