Some brief overview of this book

The third edition of this standard reference work has been substantially revised and expanded to take account of the latest developments in architectural history, as well as being completely redesigned. Throughout the book the authors approach is to see architectural history as a living continuity rather than as a museum of neatly labelled styles. In particular, he emphasizes the validity and vitality of the Classical language of architecture, which links, for example, the work of Ictinus in fifth-century Athens with that of McKim, Mead and White in twentieth-century New York. This authoritative, comprehensive and highly illustrated survey provides a fresh perspective which will be invaluable to students and anyone interested in the history of architecture.
