Syllabus reading: this book is a brick of words. It is excellent in terms of delivering a very intensive and conscise history of modern architecture; and provides a great interlocking understanding of many important modern buildings. If I had a single criticism about it, it would be that the words are so packed together in it, as are the tiny thumbnail images that accompany them, that it can be quite a strain on the eyes to read. As a cohesive representation of 100 or so years of architecture it provides a main route from which personal investigation can begin. I, certainly, went searching the internet, and other books, for better images of many of the buildings mentioned in here.

The book is much more than a chronology of architecture. What makes it special is its tissue as a number of overlapping essays setting modern architecture in its historical, political and ideological context from a critical distance. The packaging in relative short chapters helps the reader to follow a complex and lively narrative.

The book has been updated and offers a section of contemporary architecture in the global context. Very good, since long ago.
