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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book, could be improved 2 mars 2014

I purchased this book because I am taking Prof. Kleiner's Coursera course on the same topic.

This is a fine book. However there are many things it is not. As it claims it is a visual guide to a selection of Roman architectual sites. It does not correspond directly to Prof. Kleiner's course. It is not an in-depth guide to Roman architecture. I was a bit disappointed by the lack of depth and background on the subject. It supplies a half to one page description of each site.

On each such page there is a link to "maps". For me this links to a single almost empty page. The Geolocation link brings you to the exact site on Google maps. The Monument list brings you to a monument list... however it is not the famous "monument list" we need for the Coursera course.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awsome book; slow medium. 9 mars 2014
Par Robin E. Marquardt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The information in the book is awesome. What I hate is the navigating of Kindle (or ebook) because it is as slow as my computer and confusing. For example, it says it has 3695 locations, so I guess the ebook has - I don't know how many pages - up to ?? pages + ?? pictures that add up to 3695; this & the slowness makes it difficult if not impossible to get through the ebook. For the sake of me reading the book I hope Kindle makes it easier to read. Otherwise, the material that I have been able to read (around Location 496) is great.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Text and Roman Architecture Travel Guide 23 février 2014

I am using the book in conjunction with the author's Coursera Roman Architecture course. It is essential for reviewing lecture material with the excellent monument index and links to the monument images, to in-text maps and to access the sites on Goggle maps. The numerous photographs and excellent text are like going on an Italian vacation and although I am using the book as a text book, the book can stand alone as an excellent travel guide for Roman architecture.
