"Indra McEwen's book is an elegant and imaginative exploration of Vitruvius's intellectual horizons that allows us to look at De architectura with new respect. In her hands it transcends the dimensions of a technical handbook and becomes a window onto the Romans' conceptual construction of their world." - Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, Director, The British School at Rome, and Professor of Classics, Reading University
