This book ties together many ideas from the fields of anthropology and architecture. Rapoport methodically builds an argument for his hypothesis that "The different forms taken by dwellings are a complex phenomenon for which no single explanation will suffice."This is a seminal book on the impact of Culture on architectural form. His writing is very accessible for the non-anthropologist and general public.
