The only English-language book of its kind, this dictionary gives a comprehensive survey of the whole range of ancient Near Eastern architecture: from the Neolithic round huts in Palestine to the giant temples of Ptolemaic Egypt. Leick describes the variations of typical ancient architectural structures such as pyramids, tombs and houses, details the building material and techniques employed, and clarifies specialist terminology.
"Beside fulfilling initial curiosity, they serve best as a bibliographic guide to more elaborate discussions. The book is nicely designed and produced, ending in helpful glossary, bibliography, index, and illustrations. Recommended for all libraries, personal or institutional."--Religious Study Review
