            It has long been known that all forms of art - rock paintings, carvings and scribings, and also portable sculpture - are present at various locations throughout Africa. This book was the first inclusive survey and brings together in one volume accounts of African rock art which w...ere previously scattered in scholarly monographs, journals and travellers' tales. The range of the coverage is geophysically comprehensive, from the Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope. The art styles are set into a firm chronological framework, and are displayed against a background of human, physical and cultural evolution. Considerable discussion is also devoted to the varied purposes which the paintings and carvings served in the communities which produced them, looking at the differing interpretations fully and fairly. A fascinating collection of illustrations, some in colour, truly reflects the variety of forms in which African rock art is manifested. Originally published 1984.

            Native American Architecture
             

            Native American Architecture (Hardback)

            This book is the first full length, illustrated study of North American Indian architecture to appear in a century. The product of a collaboration between an architect and an anthropologist, the book presents the building traditions of the major tribes in nine regional profiles c...overing the continent - from the huge, plankhouse villages of the Northwest Coast to the moundbuilder towns and temples of the Southeast to the Navajo hogans and adobe pueblos of the Southwest. This book is far more than a survey of buildings. Its multidisciplinary approach offers a broad, clear view of the Native American world, resulting in a new understanding of the meaning of their buildings and culture. Nabokov and Easton describe how Indian buildings, as a central element of their culture, were the symbolic summation of tribal activity, and how the settlements secured for their inhabitants a sense of place in the environment. The book introduces us to the ancient social customs, economic ways of life, and technological skills of each tribe, emphasizing the major role played by cosmological concepts and ritual life in their architectural systems. Each chapter concludes with an account of traditional Indian building practices under revival or in danger today. The book uses historical photographs and drawings, architectural renderings, and specially prepared interpretive diagrams which decode the sacred cosmology of the principal housetypes. Native American Architecture is a major contribution to the expanding worldwide interest in vernacular architecture - a milestone in scholarly investigation and cultural reconstruction.
