Praise for the First Edition

"Because of its exceptionally wide perspective, even architectural historians who do not teach general survey courses are likely to enjoy and appreciate it."
Annali d'architettura

"Not only does A Global History of Architecture own the territory (of world architecture), it pulls off this audacious task with panache, intelligence, and for the most part grace."
Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

Revised and updated the compelling history of the world's great architectural achievements

Organized along a global timeline, A Global History of Architecture, Second Edition has been updated and revised throughout to reflect current scholarship.
