This lavishly illustrated volume - with many images previously unpublished in colour - collects 18 articles by Bernard O'Kane on a wide variety of topics in Arab architecture. The essays range from from Morocco to India, and from the earliest periods of Islam to the present day. He concentrates on monuments in Egypt and Syria, analysing topics such as the borrowings between domestic and religious architecture, studies of individual buildings and mutual influences between Iran and Egypt.
