Cities and architectures of Tunisia is a reference work with in-depth original contributions enabling the informed reader but also a wider public to understand the history of Tunisian architectural and urban knowledge in their interrelationships with the societies and the actors who implement them. Thus the various contributions dialogue and answer each other. They propose a panoply of themes and questions examined in the light of the methods of architectural and urban history.
