Naples at Table-Cooking in Campania
by Schwartz, Arthur R.

Harper-Collins Publishers, Inc, 1998

While technically this is a cookbook, it is so much more.  It includes information on the history and preparation of Italian food.  It covers the well-known Italian recipes, as well as some of the lesser-known specialties.  It encompasses the cooking of the provinces of Avellino, Benevento, Caserta, and Salerno, the internationally famous resorts of the Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Ischia - and of course, Naples itself.
