The years between 1917 and 1932 marked a fertile period in Soviet architecture. Drawing from revolutionary ideas and from painting and sculpture, architects like Melnikov, Leonidov, and the Vesnins worked with their new state to change man by reordering the environment. The architecture is unmatched in vitality and creativity. This study is the most comprehensive to date. Although the text is leaden stylistically, with over 1500 illustrations, including rare plans and photographs, Pioneers of Soviet Architecture will be an invaluable sourcebook for students of history, politics, and architecture. H. Ward Jandl, National Park Service, Washington, D.C.
