Large 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. A volume in the Spatial Habitus: Making and Meaning in Asia's Architecture series. Edited by Ronald G. Knapp and Xing Ruan. "'The Hermit's Hut' offers an original insight into the profound relationship between architecture and asceticism. Although architecture continually responds to ascetic compulsions, as inits frequent encounter with the question of excess and less, it is typically considered separate from asceticism. In contrast, this innovative book explores the rich and mutual ways inwhich asceticism and architecture are played out in each other's practices . The question of asceticism is also considered -- as neither a religious discourse nor a specific cultural tradition but as a perennial issue in the practice of culture. The work convincingly traces the influences from earlyIndian asceticism to Zen Buddhism to the Japanese teahouse -- the latter o pening the door to modern minimalism." - from the dustjacket.

"Cities have evolved from small urban systems designed to withstand attack from without. The demands of the modern city have shifted the focus to the dangers of internal violence. War and the City analyses the role of cities in war and the effects of war on cities." (from the dj, back panel). "In War and the City, Gregory Ashworth examines the relationship between war (as an activity), and cities (as particular spatial settings). The book brings together the characteristics of cities and the defence function, arguing that the two have an important influence on each other. Defence has long been a priority for urban planners. It has often shaped the choice of location and site, architecture and physicalform and even the organization of urban societies. Similarly, cities have influenced the shape of conflict, both in external attack anad internal insurrection, at times having both active and passive roles. Exploring how political, social, economic and technological change have all influenced urbandevelopment, the author synthesizes military history and the geography of urban defence to question both the past and the future of the city at war."(front dj flap).

"Traditional Islamic architecture clearly establshes an equilibrium between the significance of form and its physical expression. This relationship is maintained through an understanding of geometry, not only as a precise science, but also as a vehicle for generating art and beauty. This monograph illustrates the geometric construction which underlie the arch form in Islamic architecture. This analysis will hopefully provide a reference for architects and craftsmen to preserve and re-interpret the traditional arch form throughout the Islamic world." (from the back cover).

The four craft which make up the major part ofthe book are the pinnace, the ketch, the shallop, and the bark. [...] Plan s for the various types of vessels used in Colonial America were not standardized. From early marine specifications, from contemporary illustrations, and from references in some of the colonists' journals such as the shallop assembled by Captain John Smith's party on landing and the 'catch' in an entry of Governor Bradford's, Mr. Baker has developed an enlightening view ofthe craft so vital to the existence of the North American colonies." - fro m the dj.
