This new book, 'Dwellings - The Vernacular House World Wide' takes into account further scholarship in the field and also acknowledges theoretical developments in the areas of cultural geography, gender studies, sociology and anthropology. Each narrative chapter is illustrated with drawing and photographs, largely by the author from his research field trips over many years. For architects and students, and for those involved in historical research, or the field of vernacular architecture, it is an informative document of the ways in which houses are constructed, decorated and inhabited around the world.
