Archaeological Sites and Urban Centres: UNESCO World Heritage
There are now some 730 cultural or natural sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List and this book features 45 of them - from Vatican City to Macchu Picchu via Cracow, Cordoba and Cairo. The accounts of each site are dutifully descriptive, not evoca - tive, and the photographs variable in quality; those of the Mosque of Kalyßn at Bukhara (far left) and Angkor Wat (left) are among the better. There are no details about visiting. Useful for libraries, perhaps.
