The Architecture of First Societies: A Global Perspective

(Wiley and Sons Press, 2013) Relying on the latest archaeological and anthropological research, this textbook begins at the dawn of human society some 100,000 years ago and traces the different cultural formations that developed in various places and in different ways into village societies the world over. The book will serve to help students see the history of early architecture through the lens of both time and geography. It also aims to fill a major gap in the teaching of architecture’s early history. The book will be generously illustrated with color photos, some from such noted photographers as Eric Lafforgue, Cherry Alexander and Victor Englebert. More than three hundred drawings and maps were custom-produced for this book.
