Just out;
Castles of God, by Peter Harrison.
Boydell Press ...ISBN 1 84383 066 3
Price; mine was a pre-publication price with postage of 24. 50:
Only came yesterday, so just going through it. But no doubt the best book on fortifications to come out for many a year, dealing with a little known subject.
The book has a lot to do in just about 300 pages, touching on fortified religious buildings of Christendom, Islam and Tibetan Buddhism. Stunning pictures of well known and very little known sites, excellent plans etc.
And best of all ... yours truely had a picture accepted for the book.
I can only hope this is the start of more books on a long neglected subject.
