Book: Richard Ross. Architecture of Authority.

Discussed by Alan Moore at http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/brands/2007/07/dancing-in-the-.html

Description

"From a Montessori preschool to churches, mosques and diverse civic spaces including a Swedish courtroom, the Iraqi National Assembly hall and the United Nations, the images in Architecture of Authority build to ever harsher manifestations of power: an interrogation room at Guantánamo, segregation cells at Abu Ghraib, and finally, a capital punishment death chamber.

The word is control, control of the few over the many, the social engineering that goes with control." (http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/brands/2007/07/dancing-in-the-.html)
