About this title


This is the first ever modern monograph to draw together all the strands of India's architectural history - from the Vedic and native traditions of early India, through Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and secular architecture, to the eclecticism of the British Raj. The History of Architecture in India provides the essential background information on invasions and migrations, dynasties, religion, symbolism and myth in the development of characteristic forms. Hundreds of photographs, engravings, maps, plans and elevations are closely integrated with rigorous but accessible text, resulting in a tome essential for scholars and anyone interested in one of the world's richest architectural traditions.

About the Author:

Christopher Tadgell is Senior Lecturer in Architectural History at the Canterbury School of Architecture, Kent Institute of Art and Design. In 1985 he was appointed Morgan Professor of Architectural Design at the University of Louisville, Kentucky.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
