REVIEWS: Reviewer: It seemed to me that the authors had to strain some to make an entire book of this, but its subject certainly is a structure unbelievably rich in history. One can scarcely help but be moved to remember Byron's words in Childe Harold which end thusly: "Heroes have trod this spot--'tis on their dust we trod." Check out my other HISTORY items!
