Overview

Early (emeritus, English, Southern Methodist U.) surveys the Spanish architecture of Florida, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, and California prior to 1846 and offers an assessment of Hispanic architecture in the following years. His intention is not only to describe the forms and styles of churches, forts, simple houses, and other structures, but also to shed light on the social contexts within which they were built. In addition to numerous b&w photographs, 16 color plates show examples of the structures discussed. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
