About the Author:

Carole Rifkind, a writer, curator, and consultant to civic and cultural groups, has taught at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Historic Preservation. She lives in New York City.

Review:

With her unconditional love for architecture in all its forms, she refuses to overlook a particular style or movement on purely esthetic grounds or merely because it has become unfashionable. Thus, if readers will be astonished by some of her more deservedly obscure examples, few will doubt her passion or immense skill in digesting and summarizing the most perplexing half-century in American architectural history. -- The New York Times Book Review, Martin Filler
