Physical description 127 pages : illustrations, maps, ; 22 cm
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This fascinating study of the development of architecture, and the impact in Southeast Asia of architectural models on that development, draws for its early examples primarily from surviving Hindu-Buddhist monuments in Cambodia and Java. Dumaray argues that, despite the fact that individual physical locations may merit innovation, new construction nevertheless tends to be constrained by pre-existing architectural models, whether appropriate to the new situation or otherwise, which are held within the collective consciousness of a given culture.
