Présentation de l'éditeur

Diana E. E. Kleiner has shared her deep knowledge and passion for the history and architecture of ancient Rome with thousands of students, travelers, and enthusiasts through her lectures. She is indeed “the traveler’s best friend”—and now she has created an enhanced eBook that richly deserves that encomium as well. Professor Kleiner personally guides you through the great ruins of Rome and the Roman Empire, highlighting their most fascinating and important features with an extraordinary wealth of knowledge, insights and anecdotes. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide offers readers over 250 appealing and enlightening visual images alongside accessible, concise descriptions that focus on precisely the most pertinent and meaningful information.. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is an indispensable—and enchanting—resource for travelers, architecture enthusiasts, historians, and all those with an interest in any aspect of the richly multi-faceted subject that is Roman architecture.

At its most expansive, the Roman Empire stretched from the British Isles to Egypt; Rome was the ancient world’s greatest superpower. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide takes us to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, exploring not only Rome but also buildings preserved at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Tivoli, North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, and North Africa—allowing readers to trace the growth and expansion of the Roman Empire chronologically through its cities.

Roman Architecture’s wealth of photographs and site plans of these intriguing structures are presented from the fresh perspective of an author who has journeyed to nearly all of the sites, revealing most of them through her own digital images. In addition, this interactive e-book makes learning about these monuments easier than ever, with handy maps and geolocation links that show you just where the monuments are and, if you’re traveling, how to get there. A fascinating introduction to some of history’s most compelling and influential architecture, Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is an enthralling resource, whether one wishes to visit Rome in person or from afar.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not all that informative 13 février 2014

This was published to accompany an online course on Roman architecture. Even for this purpose it is not all that informative. Scanty texts repeat information given in the course videos. I would not recommend it to anyone not taking the course offered by Open Yale and also Coursera. I am taking the course and hardly bother with this ebook. I would rather have a paper book to have in my hand during the video lecture.

We purchased this prior to our recent trip to Rome. We had just completed the video lecture series from Yale that this book is a companion to. We highly recommend the lectures for anyone going to Rome (or just those interested in ancient Roman architecture). Kleiner provided us with excellent background for our trip and the visual guide on our Kindle provided a useful reminder of information from the lecture series.

Good book to reinforce the lectures from dr kleiner on coursera. The class is also available thru iTunes U. Not a very complex set of readings since it is intended to match the class. Would start learning about roman architecture here the go on to more reading from other sources.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for htis subject 11 avril 2014

I am currently enrolled in this class and love it! The prof is great, the subject matter surprisingly interesting and relevant, the book well organized, although not as interesting as the class. A necessary accompaniment if you are taking the class for credit, a nice extra to have if not.
