'[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
