By John M. Campbell on November 3, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is an extraordinary study of the roots and history of Persian architecture, vividly illustrated. Two thousand years of space, form and culture and a discussion of the roots roots of it. Written in the time of the last Shah when the clergy was banished from government and Iran was leaping into the modern world. Where, I wonder, are the authors today?

Format: Paperback
The information contained in this book has influenced some of my favorite contemporary artists, like Monir Farmanfarmaian and Bill Viola. I faintly remember seeing the book as a child in Iran. I was reacquainted with "A Sense of Unity" in 2007 during the making of "The Night Journey", an experimental video game, when Mr. Viola brought his copy to a team meeting. He flipped through it, as he read passages and pointed to illustration, to help us understand how it changed his life when he first read it in his 20s.

Everyone in this country could benefit from reading just the preface of this wonderful book. "Islamic terrorists" have created the "terror" of a prejudice that grossly misrepresents the underlying Spiritual truths of this religion. This deprives us of the wonderful principles, philosophy, morals, art, music, literature and, of course, architecture that are expressed through this world view. This work is original and unique in it's scholarly and artistic presentation of Persian roots in both ancient and modern architecture. Perfect for the coffee table of enlightened readers and their guests.
