A History of Architecture and Trade, Hardback Book

Description

A History of Architecture and Trade draws together essays from an international roster of distinguished and emerging scholars to critically examine the important role architecture and urbanism played in the past five hundred years of global trading, moving away from a conventional Western narrative.

The book uses an alternative holistic lens through which to view the development of architecture and trade, covering diverse topics such as the coercive urbanism of the Dutch East India Company; how slavery and capitalism shaped architecture and urbanization; and the importance of Islamic trading in the history of global trade.

Each chapter examines a key site in history, using architecture, landscape and urban scale as evidence to show how trade has shaped them.

It will appeal to scholars and researchers interested in areas such as world history, economic and trade history and architectural history.
