Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presidio, Mission, and Pueblo: Spanish Architecture and Urbanism in the United States is the first comprehensive account of Spanish architecture and urbanism in the United States, covering the whole of the old Spanish borderlands--Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

Book News Annotation:

Early (emeritus, English, Southern Methodist U.) surveys the Spanish architecture of Florida, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, and California prior to 1846 and offers an assessment of Hispanic architecture in the following years. His intention is not only to describe the forms and styles of churches, forts, simple houses, and other structures, but also to shed light on the social contexts within which they were built. In addition to numerous b&w photographs, 16 color plates show examples of the structures discussed.
