These titles are part of the new 40-volume "World Architecture" series to be completed over the next five years. Each volume covers a country or period; chief features of the series are the fine illustrations and the clear, concise texts that cover the material in style. A very good value, the books are printed in a large format with many illustrations in sumptuous color, even the maps and plans. Stierlin is best known for his 16-volume Architecture Universelle, published between 1964 and 1972. His text, together with his wife's photographs, brings alive the world of Turkish architecture, centered on the great architect Sinan (1489-1588). Kahn (architecture, MIT) gives a balanced survey of the dominant new styles of 20th-century architecture up to the advent of Postmodernism. For all architecture collections.APeter S.
