    Invented about 13,000 years ago, mud architecture has since been one of the most common, economical, useful, and widespread forms of building.

  • The Cultural Life of Imagesby Brian Leigh Molyneaux

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Pictures are often admired for their aesthetic merits but they are rarely treated as if they had as much to offer as the written word.

Images, however, are not passive, and have a direct impact that engages attention in ways independent... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    In a discipline which essentially studies how modern man came to be, it is remarkable that there are hardly any conceptual tools to describe change.

Change was primarily... more...
