In this monumental, two-volume set--the first comprehensive study of Canadian architecture--Harold Kalman presents a rich panorama, treating the vast range of Canadian building, from the native peoples and first settlers to the recent past to the present day. He describes the country's architectural history in a lucid and engaging narrative, placing the buildings firmly in a social and cultural context to illuminate distinct characteristics of Canadian architects and architecture. Lavishly illustrated with over eight hundred black and white drawings and photographs, this work will be an essential reference for anyone interested in architectural history.

Review:


"These two handsome volumes constitute the first comprehensive account of Canadian architecture, for which he deserves praise....He advances the literature beyond the study of individual architects and structures or period and stylistic issues, and reverses the long-standing problem of dependence on US-centered books about North American architecture....It will interest a wide general audience and become a standard undergraduate reader."--Choice
