The Emergence of the Christian Basilica in the Fourth Century
The Emergence of the Christian Basilica in the Fourth Century (January 2000)
James Riley Strange - Author

Explores why the Christian basilica emerged.

We naturally ask why the Christian basilica emerged. Given its abrupt appearance and immediate standardization, the Christian basilica appears to have been designed for a purpose. If this is so, what we want to know is, [1] for what purpose Christians used basilicas (that is, what happened in Christian basilicas), [2] why they adopted the basilical st...(Read More)
 
 
Archeticture
Archeticture (October 1997)
Ecstasies of Space, Time, and the Human Body
David Farrell Krell - Author

Nature, Poetry, and Childhood Memory
Louise Chawla - Author

"I have a great respect for the way in which Dr. Chawla has been able to address and integrate a diverse set of literatures--environmental psychology, developmental psychology, phenomenology, literature and literary criticism, nature studies, and feminist theory. I am not surprised at the breadth of her insights because she has been so clear about her hermeneutic and phenomenological approach to the questions about childhood memories, nature, and d...(Read More)

Expanding the American Dream
Expanding the American Dream (February 1993)
Building and Rebuilding Levittown
Barbara M. Kelly - Author

Much has been written about the housing policies of the Depression and the Postwar period. Much less has been written of the houses built as a result of these policies, or the lives of the families who lived in them. Using the houses of Levittown, Long Island, as cultural artifacts, this book examines the relationship between the government-sponsored, mass-produced housing built after World War II, the families who lived in it, and the society tha...(Read More)
