From the Publisher:

A comprehensive and balanced overview of modern architecture, this edition combines a clear general outline with masterly analysis and interpretation of individual buildings. The text includes much new knowledge and research and a fresh appreciation of regional identity and variety, including expanded and developed discussions of European, American and non-western traditions.

From the Back Cover:

This is the established standard book for 20th Century architecture. While technical, economic, social and intellectual developments are fully treated, the final emphasis is on individuals and on the qualities that give outstanding buildings their lasting value. The third edition incorporates new knowledge and research with a greater emphasis on regional identity and variety. Three new chapters on recent developments have been added as well as an improved illustration count to 350 4-C and 44 B/W.
