Summary
Dan Cruickshank explores man's most impressive creations. Not only the bastions of defence and aggression; homes for the gods and the dead; temples of commerce and the arts; palaces to express taste, power and wealth; and shrines of science, of learning, knowledge and politics - but also of mammon and of physical and spiritual oppression and incarceration. Can an ignoble cause create great architecture, can a prison be a thing of beauty as well as of power? These are perennial philosophical questions this book seeks to answer. Ingeniously structured by theme, this book surveys civilisation through the pioneers, visionaries, follies, ancients, rhetoric, scale, survivals and revivals of its greatest constructions. Together, the stories in this beautifully illustrated book offer a stupendous global cultural history - a history that is full of mystery and ripe for rediscovery
