Miroslav Melčák and Ondřej Beránek are co-authors of the book Mosul after Islamic State: the Quest for Lost Architectural Heritage, which has just been published by Palgrave Macmillan.

The book deals with the destruction of Mosul's historical monuments by the Jihadist organization Islamic State in 2014–2017. It contains a catalog of all destroyed monuments with detailed historical and architectural profiles of individual buildings and evaluates the significance of the destroyed heritage in the context of urban development of Mosul's historical core.
