Format: Paperback
Despite its slender appearance this glossy book contains a huge wealth of information about the concepts, history, stories and archaeology os standing stone sites.
I bought it to learn more about Carnac, which it covers sufficiently well, but there is much more to this book than that. The detailed plans, excellent photographs, and well laid-out design will give you an overview and timeline for many other major and minor megalithic sites in western europe.
One of the best impulse buys I've made.

By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
In a pocket-sized format this book crams almost everything you could wish to see. Mohen covers all the bases: the historiography of standing stones and even their role in literature and painting; megalithic monuments in other parts of the world; modern ceremonies in traditional cultures associated with standing stones; attempts by archaeologists to erect stones today; burials and artefacts associated with Northern European megaliths (as well as some of those associated with stones further afield); neolithic rock art; and, of course, theories about the astronomical significance of Stonehenge.

Of course none of it can be covered in any great depth, but there is a selected bibliography and notes and references to follow up on. The illustrations are unsurpassable, many of them beautifully amostpheric without losing clarity. Particularly interesting are old postcards and reproductions of early topographical drawings.

Anyone with any interest in the subject should buy this book. If you have room for only one book on the subject, make it this one.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was for my husband and he loved it. He's very interested in stones, dolmans, Stonehenge, Carnac and such. He raved about the book. I plan to read it some time in the future.
