Editorial Reviews

Review

". . . a richly textured presentation. . . . [The book] will likely be the first place to which anyone interested in the architecture of post-pharaonic Egypt will turn for many years to come."--Hector Williams, Egyptian Archaeology
(Hector Williams Egyptian Archaeology 2009-04-15)

"Outstanding. . . and beautifully written. . . . This is a book that all those interested in the art and architecture of the eastern Mediterranean, Pompeian wall-paintings, Ancient Egypt, and indeed Islamic architecture should study and learn from."--Andrew Selkirk, Current World Archaeology
(Andrew Selkirk Current World Archaeology 2009-04-01)

"McKenzie [brings] together a huge body of material, much of it previously difficult to access, and [presents] it all in a single, authoritative volume. . . . an essential resource for research into Hellenistic, Roman and late antique architecture."--Ruth Westgate, Journal of Hellenic Studies
(Ruth Westgate Journal of Hellenic Studies)

"This book should be an absolute 'must-read' for someone visiting Alexandria, but also for the visitor to other parts of Egypt: the great Ptolemaic temples. . . the many Coptic churches, monasteries and even the early mosques."--Ancient Egypt
(Ancient Egypt)

This is a great book; truly scientific, very intelligent and well written. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the ancient architecture, or history in common whatsoever.
