"Magnificently illustrated and richly detailed, this book describes the art and architecture of the 12th-century Buddhist temple complex of Ankor Wat in Cambodia. By themselves, the elaborate descriptions, elegant drawings, and beautiful black-and-white and color photographs of architectural features and Khmer art make this book an invaluable reference work for specialists in Asian art history, arch'ology, architecture, and religion. The introductory chapter provides the most coherent treatment of the historical and cultural setting of Angkor Wat found in English-language publications, but the author goes beyond material description and historical synthesis to offer a fascinating interpretation of Angkor Wat as a precisely constructed 'sacred environment,' built according to certain Indian- and Chinese-influenced but uniquely Khmer philosophical and religious principles." -- Choice.
