This is part of a series giving information on the architectural styles in many different parts of the world. Each guide focuses on a distinctive type of architecture within a country or a particular region, giving a detailed, well-illustrated survey of the buildings most likely to excite the traveller's curiosity and stay in the mind long after the return home. The introductory section of each book provides the historical context to the buildings. Against this background, the development and characteristics of the architecture are discussed, with an account of the principal architects involved. Finally a gazetteer lists all the important examples of the style plus a selection of minor buildings. The author has also written "A History of Ottoman Architecture".
