Art and Architecture in the Islamic Tradition: Aesthetics, Politics and Desire in Early Islam (repost)

Mohammed Hamdouni Alami, "Art and Architecture in the Islamic Tradition: Aesthetics, Politics and Desire in Early Islam (Library of Modern Middle East Studies)"
English | ISBN 10: 1848855443 | 2010 | PDF | 304 pages | 3.1 MB

Thus, since its inception almost twenty-five years ago, the Aga Khan Award has been an extraordinarily inventive and courageous enterprise, seeking always to understand the fundamental issues of the societies it addresses and to identify those subtle but pivotal watersheds that shift our perspective and open up a world of new possibilities.
