Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Watkin's (architecture history, U. of Cambridge, England) third edition contains new material on the architecture of Egypt and Mesopotamia, as well as architecture's most recent trends. One wishes for more frequent ground plans and sections as well as greater detail on the eras before the Renaissance; Watkin's writing, and examples are most expansive for the periods of the Renaissance, Baroque, and nineteenth century. Despite these reservations, the text remains a readable, solidly argued, and copiously illustrated introductory survey text useful for the undergraduate classroom.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This highly acclaimed book, in both paperback and hardcover editions, is particularly valuable for its unique approach to architectural history. The author explores structures not as separate, neatly labeled museum pieces but as a vital, living continuity across the ages, covering every major milestone of Western architecture in probing detail.
