Review

"Timely and original. . . . In this indispensable and beautifuly written first international survey of its type, Robert Bevan raise the importance of safeguarding the world''s architectural record."--Building Design   (Ellen Bennett Building Design 20060122)

"Mr. Bevan''s text is brimming with detail and informed insight regarding the conflicts he covers. . . . Excellent book."--Art Newspaper   (Art Newspaper 20060210)

"As Bevan''s fascinating, melancholy book shows, symbolic buildings have long been targeted in and out of war as a particular kind of mnemonic violence against those to whom they are special."—Guardian   (Guardian 20050226)

"The idea of a global inheritance seems to have fallen by the wayside and lessons that should have long ago been learned are still being recklessly disregarded. This is what makes Bevan''s book relevant, even urgent: much of the destruction of which it speaks is still under way."--Financial Times Magazine   (Lucy Daniel Financial Times Magazine 20060401)

"His narrative is compelling and convincing. This important book reveals the extent of cultural warfare, exposes its nature and, by helping us to understand some of the most terrible tragedies of recent times, gives us the means and resolve to fight this evil. All who care must read this book and learn its lessons."--The Independent   (Dan Cruickshank The Independent 20060525)

"The message of Robert Bevan’s devastating book is that war is about killing cultures, identities and memories as much as it is about killing people and occupying territory. War is not just licensed murder but licensed vandalism. Since people are replaceable but buildings and cultures not, the destruction of buildings is often the more ferocious."--Sunday Times (London)

   (Simon Jenkins The Sunday Times (UK) 20060707)

The Destruction of Memory presents a dark account of how that devastation is brought about, along with a cogent argument for why it deserves recognition as an atrocity separate from the human carnage it so often accompanies. . . . Bevan''s grim statistics force readers to confront yet another dimension of the savagery of our age."--Wilson Quarterly   (Tom Lewis Wilson Quarterly 20060901)

"Bevan wisely doesn''t push his case to the point of strict consistence; his weighting of the role of architecture in war is not absolutely uniform from case to case, nor does it need to be. . . . It is sobering to have so many apparent facts and figures in one book. . . . Where power belongs to the aggressor, the destruction of one family''s home might be taken as the first embodiment of a genocide. In reminding us of this Bevan has performed a valuable service, no matter what we may think about a rebuilt Warsaw or a cherished ruin. . . . If we accept that there is no architecturally embodied identity of a nation or people, that our current historical existence is not vitally wrapped up in relics of an imagined past except as nostalgia, then we are unlikely to worry about the occasionally destruction of buildings. Bevan''s book makes clear that such insouciance (and nostalgia) is the privilege of the secure and well-defended nation-states where the continuity of home and shelter is assumed."--London Review of Books  (David Simpson London Review of Books 20070514)

"Thoughtful and provocative. . . .Yet from the Nazi looting of synagogues to the Taliban''s demolition of the Bamiyan Buddhas, deliberate destruction of the physical environment has often presaged devastating conflicts. Bevan''s timely book urges us to remain attentive to such early warning signs."--In These Times   (Joshua Arthur In These Times 20070401)

"This absorbing study attempts to tease out meaning from these various vandalisms."--The Scotsman  (The Scotsman 20070501)

"His research runs deep, and his visits and interviews are wide-ranging. . . . Instructive."--Bloomsbury Review   (Reamy Jansen Bloomsbury Review )

"The sheer volume and scope of the material Bevan has gather on the destruction of architectural heritage as a form of ''cultural cleansing'' makes The Destruction of Memory a valuable resource. . . . The mass of absolutely fascinating, morally complex, and, to me at least, often unfamiliar material . . . makes Bevan well worth reading. . . . And yet the book is worth reading, because Bevan uses vivid narrative detail to bring ot our attention the important insight that ''the destruction of the cultural artifacts of an enemy people or nation'' can be a kind of analog to genocide or ethnic cleansing."--History News Network   (Diana Muir History News Network )

"Concentrates on the erasure of cultures by the destruction of their buildings and is a must-read."--RIBA Journal   (RIBA Journal )

"The ways in which memory inheres in all parts of the built environment is expressed clearly and this is an absorbing, sobering and scholarly book."--Political Studies Review   (Leslie Sklair Political Studies Review )
