Product description

Review

...a brilliant document of the times...a work which uses history knowledgeably, skillfully, and creatively: a rarity.—Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

...professionally informed, competitively astute, and perversely brilliant...

The Yale Review

...these studies are brilliant...the kind of art history and theory that is rarely produced.

Ada Louis Huxtable, The New York Times --This text refers to the paperback edition.
