"Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Historic Places is a stimulative and perceptive survey of the most important cities and sites in Asia and Oceania. The book offers extended histories of the pre-eminent sites, those that have been most notable in human history from ancient times to the present. "Each entry contains an essay that provides an historical overview of the site as well as information about what the site offers to contemporary visitors. Entries include: three separate preliminary sections—Location, Description, Site Office. This introduction is followed by a 3,000-4,000 word essay in two parts. Part one is a description of the "condition" of the site, what may be seen there currently. Part two, the main portion of the essay, is the history of the place, the events that happened there and their significance. "Entries conclude with an annotated Bibliography of books/articles pertaining to the site. Each entry is illustrated with a current or historic photograph, a plan, or an artist’s rendering of the site as it was, whatever is most appropriate to the subject. "Perceptive, insightful, selective and lavishly illustrated, the book is an indispensable reference tool. The simplicity and clarity of its presentation makes it enchanting to read. The book will prove to be of invaluable asset to students, teachers, librarians, historians, and anyone interested in historic places. Printed Pages: 1006.
