World architecture provides a full-scale authoritative text, divided into nine sections: introduction, in which the meaning of architecture in its long continuous tradition is clearly and succinctly presented; Ancient and classical which extends from the Neolithic to the superb classical architecture of Greece and Rome; Chinese, a clear exposition of the method and development of building in ancient and modern China; Japanese, a survey of domestic and religious architecture in relation to the country’s tumultuous but isolated history; Indian, which describes and clarifies the main forms of Hindu shrines and temples; Islamic, a history of Moslem architecture in Egypt, North Africa, Spain, Persia, Turkey and India; Medieval, which covers early Christian, Byzantine, Russian, Romanesque and Gothic in Europe; Renaissance, Europe from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries; and finally Modern, a full survey of architecture in Europe, America and elsewhere during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
