From Publishers Weekly:

According to New York Times architecture critic Goldberger, the Long Island towns of East Hampton, Southampton, Bridgehampton and the other areas that collectively comprise "the Hamptons" are "perhaps the wealthiest second-home communities in the world" and are "famous for modern architecture." He provides a perceptive tour of the Hamptons, but the detailed comparison of building styles and discussion of the architects going back to the 17th century who have left an impact will primarily interest only specialists in the field. The abundant photos of breathtaking houses are arranged alphabetically by architect, a few of whom contribute their own perspectives on buildings in the area. The rarefied world of the Hamptons isn't a viable playland for all, but anyone can enjoy a visit via the pages of this showcase.

From Library Journal:

The purpose of this book is to examine some modern houses of distinction in the psychological backyard of New York City, the Hamptons, those affluent and sophisticated communities of eastern Long Island that are all too often used as "a pedestal on which to place striking objects." The recent creations of architects such as Gwathmey, Franzen, DeVido, Jaffe, and Stern are beautifully illustrated. Thirty-two firms in all are represented. Prefacing the photographs is an excellent long essay by Goldberger which surveys the architectural tradition from Shingle Style though International Style to the present "romantic modernism." Highly recommended for both architecture collections and public libraries. Priscilla E. Pratt, York Coll. Lib., CUNY
