This book focuses on a team of traditional builders specialized in the construction of towering mosque minarets in Sanaca with whom the author worked as a building laborer in order to learn about learning in a context in which formal technical training, engineers, and drawn plans are nonexistent. Through a combination of rich architectural and ethnographic description, this study of apprenticeship and human spatial cognition provides a fascinating insight into the daily lives and activities of a professional class of craftsmen, and investigates the unique teaching-learning processes that distinguish their trade and mould both their professional and social characters.
