BOOK REVIEWS

In this section, I am attempting to compile academic reviews of volumes that are particularly relevant to the study of Cypriote sculpture (admittedly some more than others). In many cases, this is limited to catalogues. As is the case with the other bibliographies on this site, I see this as a work in progress. Please feel free to email me if you have any additions. The section is organized by the type of volume (conference, catalogue, etc.) and then by author.
