Book News Annotation:
Kheirabadi (international studies, Portland State U. and social science Marylhurst U.) explores the rationale behind the physical structure and spatial patterns of traditional Iranian cities. Very few books do, he says, and he hopes his will serve as a springboard for further study. He draws on works in Persian and European languages and on his own field work to contribute to the overall understanding of cities throughout the Middle East. Annotation c.
