Originally Published in 1978 and reissued in paperback in 1988, Built in Boston has been hailed as the definitive work on the architectural history of the city and its suburbs. For this revised edition, Douglass Shand-Tucci has written four substantial new chapters, carrying the story of Boston's built environment forward from 1950 to the present. The book is illustrated with over 300 drawings, maps, and photographs, including 9 color plates.
