Pressestimmen"This is a key text on how sacred number once shaped human societies before the onset of modernity. "Twelve-Tribe Nations" reveals numerical and geometrical recipes underlying the ancient practice of the 'enchantment' of landscapes and cultures, which stands in contrast to the exploitation of modern landscapes and citizens." --Richard Heath, author of Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization and Matrix of Creation
