RUM SELJUQ ARCHITECTURE, 1170-1220: THE PATRONAGE OF SULTANS. Richard McClary. Edinburgh University Press, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Oxford University Press. 272 pp. ISBN 9781474417471 In English.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: This lavishly illustrated volume presents the major surviving monuments of the early period of the Rum Seljuqs, the first major Muslim dynasty to rule Anatolia. A much-needed overview of the political history of the dynasty provides the context for the study of the built environment which follows. The book addresses the most significant monuments from across the region: a palace, a minaret and a hospital are studied in detail, along with an overview of the decorative portals attached to a wide array of different building types. The case studies are used to demonstrate the key themes and processes of architectural synthesis and development that were under way at the time, and how they reflect the broader society.
