Covers seven thousand years of architecture. From the DJ: it was the regions stretching toward the eastern Mediterranean or bordering it directly that provided the "cradle of Western civilization." Four complex civilizations arose independently, at intervals thousands of years apart, and from different ethnic sources. Thorough, succinct and readable, the essays give the reader up-to-date and substantial information that will add to his understanding of an era that continues to influence the world today.
