Summaries and Reviews
Presents a history of over seven thousand years of Chinese architecture. (view table of contents) description: Product Description: A comprehensive and authoritative study of Chinese architecture from Neolithic times to the late-19th century. Six of China's greatest architectural historians have joined with a leading Western scholar to write this text, a collaborative history of Chinese architecture. Drawing on recent discoveries and scholarly work inside China, the volume recounts the story of China's architectural achievements, the forms they took and the historical, political, cultural and social factors that shaped them. Each chapter includes sections on cities, palatial architecture, religious architecture, tombs and gardens, as well as discussions of bridges, walls, fortifications, academies and architectural writings. Enhanced with colour plates and line drawings, explanatory maps and charts, and an index that includes Chinese terms, this should be an accessible resource for both scholars of China and visitors to China alike.
