"Probes the multiple meanings of two huge and potent "icons of crisis." Elleh's analysis brings together issues of statecraft, indigenous symbolism, religious experience, and individual hubris."-Gwendolyn Wright Professor, Graduate School of Architecture Columbia University. Elleh has chosen a provacative topic and this ambitious but highly readable book raises serious questions. It places architecture at the center of debates about culture, power, religion, and politics. Whether one agrees with Elleh or not, he is treading into new territory here. He is not responding to the canon, he is writing it.-International Journal of African Historical Studies"--Amazon.
