Product description

Review

'[An] extraordinary interpretation of Western architecture . . . Harbison's expression of his personal and professional views is unbelievably shattering and breathtaking; he has the capacity to alter the entire history of Western architecture for 100 years to come.' --Library Journal

'On its broadly chronological journey from the Egyptians to Modernists, via Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Romanesque and Historicist architecture, this book is filled with acute perceptions and fine descriptions . . . its insights make you want to travel and see.' --History Today

'Robert Harbison is a deliciously poetic architectural historian who pursues ideas like scents running hither and thither. His rich work always makes a refreshing and readable change from the exhaustive PhD-disciplined linear conventionality of his contemporaries - he believes in his own thinking . . . of all Harbison's books this is the one most likely to unexpectedly get under your skin.' --RIBA Journal

About the Author

Robert Harbison is Professor of Architecture at London Metropolitan University. He is the author of many books, including Eccentric Spaces (1977), The Built, the Unbuilt and the Unbuildable (1991) and Reflections on Baroque (Reaktion Books, 2000).
