The Living House: An Anthropology of Architecture in South-East Asia, by Roxana Waterson, was first published by the Oxford University Press, but this paperback edition was published by Thames & Hudson in 1997.
Roxana Waterson is an English anthropologist specializing in the cultures of South-East Asia, especially Indonesia.
From the front flap: "This pioneering book, the first of its kind to present a detailed picture of the house within the social and symbolic worlds of South-East Asian peoples, has become a classic. It draws on many sources of information, from both architects and anthropologists, as the well as the author's own first-hand research, and is richly illustrated with over 200 photographs, both old and new."
263 pages, 200 black and white illustrations, 24 colour illustrations.
This book is in pristine condition. Apart from the residue of former price tags on the back cover, it could pass for a new book.
