Review:

"The Story of Architecture brings understanding and insight for those who have encountered the world's architectural heritage in their travels or through the media, and seek to explore it further."-Perspective "Scholars and students of architecture should be grateful that such a compendium of knowledge is contained in one volume and one, too, which gives Asia and the Americas an acknowledged place in history."-James Macaulay, former Senior Lecturer at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow
