Description

There are new chapters on the twentieth-century architecture of the Middle East (including Israel) South-east Asia Hong -Kong. Japan and Korea the Indian sub- continent Russia and the Soviet Union Eastern Europe and Latin America. Westem Europe is divided into two chapters and the Americans into three. The books scope has been widened to include more architecture from.non-European countries and coverage of pre-twentieth-century architecture now includes six chapters on Islam. This unique book places buildings in their social. cultural and historical settings to describe the main pattems of architectural development. from Prehistoric to the Intemational Style. Again in the words of Sir Banister Fletcher this book shows that Architecture .provides a key to the habits thoughts and aspirations of  title people and without a knowledge of this art the history of any period lacks that human interest with which it should be invested.

Just wish it was in two or three volumes, its bulky otherwise.
And in India by CBS its really affordable and worth each rupee.
