About this title:


From Stonehenge and the Empire State Building to Angkor Wat and the Pyramids, this book surveys every continent to discover the most impressive, exotic, and intriguing manmade wonders of the world


Arranged in order of longitude, this spectacular guide to the 50 most breathtaking constructions on the planet reveals the awesome architectural achievements that people have created over the centuries. This is also the story of the extraordinary peoples and civilizations that created these buildings and the key roles they played as centers of religion, culture, or trade. Most selections are from previous centuries, reminders that whatever the achievement of our own technologically advanced civilization, previous cultures were capable of extraordinary monuments.

About the Author:

Hugh Thomson is a writer, filmmaker, and explorer. He has led many expeditions to Peru and is now one of Britain's foremost modern explorers of Inca settlements. His other titles include Nandi Devi, A Sacred Landscape, Tequila Oil, and The White Rock.
