From Library Journal:

One of the most remarkable turnabouts in the art communities has been the resurgence of interest in classicism and academicism in every form from avante-garde painting to the design of houses and office buildings. This book puts all of this on the map in the considered style that has made Jencks one of the most sought-after commentators on the contemporary art scene. Whether or not one views this vein of art critically as a specious effluent of Neoconservatism or enthusiastically as Jencks does, as a vital reinterpretation of the Western artistic patrimony, this tome offers an understandable, worldwide survey. It contains over 300 sharp color illustrations. Peter Kaufman, Suffolk Community Coll. Libs., Selden, N.Y.
