From the Publisher"This book by David Frisby has his characteristic hallmarks: it ismeticulously well researched and it makes unexpected and excitingconnections between bodies of thought not commonly linked together.Indeed the playing off of social theory and architectural theory isone of its distinctive contributions. His various asides, forinstance his interest in detective stories, or on expressionism,are always provocative and interesting. A book to be celebrated."Mike Savage, University of Manchester
