It is clear from the most cursory glance at this book that it has drawn heavily on the work of others. Much of the material on the case studies has come from secondary sources. All those of significance have been referenced in the text and are listed in the References and further reading. These sources have often been supplemented by interviews of the people involved - designers, property developers, sponsoring agencies, and residents and users - and by site analyses. Many people have thus been involved in completing this work. I thank them all for without their assistance my contemplating this work, let alone bringing it to fruition would have been impossible.

Assembling the data and illustrations for a book of this type is costly. The research has been supported financially over the years, whether they know it or not, by grants from the Grosser Family Fund, the American Institute of Indian Studies, the Australian Research Council and from the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales. Their support made site visits possible. Without it the production of this work would have been impossible.
