Arcanefist
This is a textbook introducing the architectural student to the Hindu temple. The author is methodical first reviewing the long standing features of the Hindu temple, which is a focal point in worship, in terms of art, architecture, and theology. The Hindu world view and the belief system has to be understood before looking at the technical and stylistic aspects of architecture, which itself is evolving. With over a hundred illustrations and drawings, the author does his best to instruct. With a publisher that specializes in illustrations, this book might have been an emotional experience, nevertheless, what we have is praiseworthy.

This book is great for those who want an in depth look at Hindu philosophy and the place of temples within it. It's a bit scanty on cultural practices and rituals - that is not the book's aim. It does a wonderful job of explaining things so that a Westerner (like me) can understand. It is, however, a very heavy book. It is certainly not light bed time reading like a National Geographic would be. :)

Michell is an extremely careful and conscientious chronicler of this difficult, dense subject. He writes unusually well - absolutely clear English - and makes his way through a wide array of topics. Invaluable to the student of the subject.
