This is a dense collection, rich in content and theoretical interest. While it is framed primarely for a dedicated readership in architectural history, it has a far wider significance. The eassays work effectively in providing intersecting views of a transformation of the built landscape that, while incomplete and fractured in its impact, constitutet an important part of what we understand of the transition of modernity.
