A morning in synagogue; before the synagogue; the ancient world; the gothic phase; the Islamic symbiosis; Renaissance and Baroque; the old country; the age of historicism; the modern movement.
Harold A. Meek read architecture at Manchester University. After serving 12 years as Ancient Monuments Architect to the government in Northern Ireland, Dr Meek lectured on the history of architecture at Queen's University, Belfast.
"A delicious book. Meek has an ear for the engaging anecdote and an eye for the glorious edifice or architectural detail."-Newsday
"This well-designed work will serve as a splendid gift book, suitable for the bar or bat mitzvah. The colour photography is indeed beautiful. Its superb design and visual appeal should render The Synagogue a great success."-Jewish Book World
