9780745305226: Design History and the History of Design

An essential overview as well as a theoretical critique for all students of design history. Walker studies the intellectual discipline of Design History and the issues that confront scholars writing histories of design. Taking his approach from a range of related fields, he discusses the problems of defining design and writing history. He considers the different methods that leading scholars have used in the absence of a theoretical framework, and looks critically at a number of histories of design and architecture.

About the Author:

John A Walker recently retired as Reader in Art and Design History at Middlesex University. The author of a number of books on art theory and aspects of popular culture, his other Pluto press titles include Cultural Offensive: America's Impact on British Art since 1945, and Art and Outrage: Provocation, Controversy and the Avant Garde.

Review:

'The most systematic, the most comprehensive and the most comprehensible account of what design history would like to be ... I would not hesitate to recommend it.' -- Designer's Journal 'The best introduction to the critical study of design that I have encountered.' -- Building Design 'The scope of the book is admirable' -- Times Higher Education
