Looking in depth at tombs built in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Gwendolyn Leick surveys the history of these modern leaders, their deaths, and the creation of the mausoleums. She traverses the globe, investigating the memorial sites of Communist leaders such as Lenin, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, and Kim Il-Sung; Fascist rulers Franco and Mussolini; and founding fathers of new nations, including Ziaur Rahman in Dhaka, Mohammed Ali Jinnah in Karachi, and Sun Yat-sen in Nanjing. Leick describes the experience of visiting the sites, the responses they elicit, and the context in which they are viewed today. Combining history, architecture, and travel writing, Tombs of the Great Leaders is a revealing study of the self-perpetuation of politicians, despots, and dictators alike.

Данная книга даёт возможность и английский немного подтянуть, и узнать что-то новое.
Политические лидеры разных стран, которых считали настолько великими, что похоронили в специально построенных мавзолеях - тема книги. Читатель может узнать и о жизни этих лидеров, и об архитекторах, построивших мавзолеи, и увидеть фотографии этих усыпальниц. Я воочию видел только мавзолей Ленина, а в остальных не был, поэтому посмотреть фотографии и почитать об истории их создания весьма любопытно. Кроме того, обогатил свою английскую лексику.
