1 Review
Dedicated to the preservation of our planet's architectural treasures, the World Monuments Watch was established in 1996 to aid in the rescue of endangered cultural sites. Breath-taking full-color photographs, many newly commissioned, portray the most important sites on the Watch's list between 1996 and 2000 -- including such marvels as the Angkor Archaeological District in Cambodia, Colorado's Mesa Verde National Park, ancient Pompeii, and many others around the globe.

Spanning Baroque palace gardens in Vienna to an ancient city in the central Asian desert, the book includes brief discussions of each site. Published in association with the World Monuments Fund, the parent organization of the World Monuments Watch, this richly visual book will appeal to anyone interested in architecture, archaeology, and cultural history.
