Syria: A Historical and Architectural Guide

Front Cover
Scorpion Publishing Limited, 1994 - Architecture - 216 pages
With a wealth of historical splendors matched by few other countries, Syria has remained almost undiscovered by mass tourism. As a result, little has been spoiled, and there is much to discover. With lucid and informative text, this book reconsiders the history and heritage of the country and surveys major sites, making a strong case for reassessing its importance in our perception of the growth of civilization out of the Middle East. With its many site plans and maps, readable text and 96 color plates, it makes available the wealthy history, archaeology, and architecture to the general reader.
