Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195851153, Hardcover)This pioneering work in Chinese domestic architecture examines for the first time the Chinese house from a cultural perspective.

Extensively illustrated with wood block prints from traditional Chinese homes, original line drawings, and Knapp's own photographs, the book vividly portrays a living tradition of amazing resilience.
