The Destruction of Memory: Architecture at War

by Robert Bevan - £9.95  Reaktion Books (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780235974 | ISBN 10: 1780235976

The destruction of Nimrud and Palmyra, crumbled shells of mosques in Iraq, the fall of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11: when architectural totems such as these are destroyed by conflicts and the ravages of war, more than mere buildings are at stake.
The Destruction of Memory, now with a new preface, argues that such destruction not only shatters a nationís culture and morale but is a deliberate act of eradicating a cultureís memory and, ultimately, its existence. A film of the same name based on the book will be released in early 2016.
