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.
