What People are Saying About This

Gerald P. Schaus

'Studies in Hellenistic Architecture demonstrates quite admirably the place of Hellenistic architecture within the development from Classical to Roman Imperial architecture. It is an impressive effort both in scope and learning, and a significant contribution to a somewhat neglected field. This is a very ambitious undertaking — one that has been long needed, especially in English — and with it Frederick E. Winter has reached a high standard. The book is well organized, covers a tremendous amount of material, is thorough, balanced, well written, and clear, and contains a wonderful collection of photos and plans.'
