Arranged according to region, this volume introduces the student and general reader to the architectural splendors of the Islamic world. The book contains nearly 70 architectural drawings, close to 200 half-tone plates, and separate maps of eastern and western Islam. In addition, there is a glossary of the architectural terms relevant to the study of Islamic architecture. Finally, a set of four indices covering architectural terms and features, types of buildings, architects and craftsmen, and (mainly medieval) authors greatly facilitates the use of the book.
