Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415413176, Paperback)

Lavishly illustrated with beautiful photographs and original plans, Damascus provides for the first time in English a compelling and unique exploration of a fascinating city.

Damascus traces the story of this colourful, significant and complex city through its physical development, from its obscure origins in the Bronze Age through the changing cavalcade of Aramaean, Persian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Turkish and French rulers right up to the end of Ottoman control in 1918.

Examining how every layer of history in Damascus has built precisely on top of its predecessors for at least three millennia, this book looks at the detailed, and largely untouched archaeological record of one of the oldest continuously inhabited capitals in the world.
