Manah, an Omani oasis, an Arabian legacy. Archtecture and social history of an Omani settlement.

£40.00

Product description

This volume explores the architectural features and urban character of Harat al-Bilad, the principal settlement of Manah, an important oasis of central Oman. Originally a frontier settlement, Harat al-Bilad straddles the boundary between the foothills of the Green Mountains and the desert foreland and has long played an important role in the historical and cultural development of the region. Like its geographical namesake, Manah crosses and defies boundaries-and will be of interest to a wide range of readers, including historians, architects, archaeologists, conservationists, and policy makers.
Large, heavy hardback book with an illustrated cover, there are some rubbing marks on the cover but otherwise the covers are in very good condition with no bumped corners. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. Illustrated with black and white plus some colour photographs and with floor plans to some of the buildings and land areas.
