"Uncovers the biographies of some of the world's most fascinating lost and ruined buildings, from the dawn of civilisation to the cyber era. ... Ranging from the deserts of Iraq to the banks of the Nile, from the grasslands of Mongolia to the cloud forests of Peru, and through the great cities of Jerusalem, Constantinople, Rome, Paris, London and New York, Fallen glory is a unique guide to a world of vanished architecture. And by picking through the fragments of our past, it asks what history's scattered ruins can tell us about the future."--Jacket flap.
