Summary
"Presents a collection of writings by architects and planners who have made studies in many parts of Africa, anthropologists who have worked with tribal societies, and a number of contributors who are native to the communities and peoples they discuss ... discusses population distribution, linguistic areas, and natural resources that effect building types and planning forms ... regional discussion also provides comparisons among different construction techniques within the tradition and leads to an examination of change occasioned by urbanization"--Dustjacket
