Dictionary of Islamic Architecture (repost)

Dictionary of Islamic Architecture by Andrew Petersen
English | ISBN: 0415213320 | edition 1999 | PDF | 352 pages | 5,2 mb

This resource provides an alphabetically arranged overview of the history of Islamic architecture. It consists of hundreds of entries focusing on geographical, archaeological, historical, and architectural terminology (from many languages). Every entry begins with a simple, one-sentence definition (for some technical terms there is no further explanation); most then continue with an expanded explanation from one paragraph to multiple pages in length.Many of the longer entries also include limited "Further reading" lists and "See also" references to other terms. Accompanying most entries are illustrations in the form of photographs, plans, maps, and drawings: these are especially effective when discussing architectural details unique to Islamic buildings.
