Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947) pioneered one form of cultural studies in India. His analysis of Indian civilization extended, in one direction, to Indian ideas and theories of architecture. This volume presents the essays that best represent Coomaraswamy's thought on the hermeneutics ofIndian architecture - i.e. its `why'. not `how'.
Michael W. Meister is a Professor in the Department of Art History, University of Pennsylvania.
