Review

"The fact that Schlgel's book was originally written in the beginning of the 1980s not only provides the reader with a unique view but also sets the background for a better understanding of contemporary Moscow. . . . Successfully explores aspects of Moscow history often neglected by cultural studies. . . . Moscow proves to be an entertaining and insightful study of Moscow, one that prompts the reader to explore the city further." -- Natalia Lechtchenko "Russian Review" (10/01/2006)

"Uncovers interesting links. . . . Constructivism and its legacy in Moscow's architecture figure largely inSchlogel s book, so it is fitting that the English translation has come out at a time when awareness of the movement's importance is growing."--Brian Droitcour"Moscow Times" (06/30/2006)"

2.0 out of 5 stars I expected more 28 Nov. 2011
By DS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an informative yet very dry read. I would not have made it through had it not been required reading while I was studying abroad in Moscow. I personally would look elsewhere for an account on Moscow history.
