Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0750646357, Hardcover)

In his famously controversial style - Martin Pawley reviews a selection of books on the architecture of the 20th century. Books that we should have read, and indeed would have read - if only we'd had the time. Pawley digests and critiques them for us with an agility that has kept the readers of his newspaper and magazine columns provoked and amused for several decades. He provides us with both ammunition and armour - encouraging us to fight off the soporific PR-led commentary of today and to rekindle the passion of the architectural debate.

Martin Pawley is an award-winning writer. He has written many books on architecture for UK and US based publishers and writes a regular column for national and international architectural magazines. Throughout his career he has reviewed books for The Guardian, The Observer, The London Review of Books, The Architects' Journal, Design Book Review, Blueprint, Architectural Design, Building, World Architecture, Architecture Review, Designer and The RIBA Journal many of which are published here.


*Gain knowledge on all the major books on 20th century architecture, by reading just one

*Hear the opinions of Pawley, and learn about the debates, on the development of architectural theory in the 20th century
