Description from back cover:
Between 7,000 and 800 B.C. complex civilizations arose in Mesopotamia and Egypt. Though travel, commerce, and conquest occasionally brought them into contact, each maintained its own pattern of belief and social dynamics. In this volume the authors explore the characteristic architecture of each culture examining in turn the sun-dried brick citadels of Mesopotamia, the massive stone pyramids of Egypt, and countless other masterworks. The illuminating combination of texts, diagrams, reconstructions and bibliographies, brings together substantial information that will enhance understanding of a seminal era in the history of the occidental world.
