About the Author:

Stephen Games is an author and editor.

Review:

Games looks beneath the surface ... This biography, broad in its sweep and engrossing in its detail, promises to enrich our understanding of a great scholar and a driven, complex man. (Literary Review)

Now, finally, we have the first part of the full biography that Games has been working on for most of his adult life ... there is much good primary source ­material. Pevsner's story, in the end, is the personification, in one brilliant individual, of fractured Europe in the 20th century. (Sunday Times)

Compelling ... I was fascinated to learn that far from being the detached rationalist many of us assume the meticulous German-born art historian to have been, Pevsner was as emotional as the rest of us (Jonathan Glancey, Building Design: The Architect's Website)

In-depth article, Ham & High etc

A sympathetic and meticulously researched account of Nicolaus Pevsner's early life. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

Games handles his subject with skill and a deep knowledge of architectural thinking. He writes illuminatingly of, among much else, Pevsner's elucidation of the artistic importance of Leipzig's Baroque buildings. (The Jewish Chronicle, UK)

Densely researched and surprisingly easy to read (Architects Journal)

Games has spent years on getting straight the story of Pevsner's early life and telling it fully and fairly ... The triumph of the book is his picture of German cultural and academic life during Pevsner's youth. Games illuminates this potentially stodgy subject with verve, passion and detail. (Architecture Today)

The sympathetic brilliance of this book is that most readers will accept, given Pevsner's background and upbringing in post-1918 Germany , that they would have made the same political and religious choices and evasions ... [a] wise book. (The Art Newspaper)

Games deserves great praise for an exceptional piece of research tactfully and humanely delivered. (Blueprint)

An intelligent account of Pevsner's early development ... This is a gripping and important story. (The American Spectator)

Games's biography is based on energetic research - almost Pevsnerian in its industry - in innumerable archives. In a lively, informal style he presents an account of Pevsner's German background such as not hitherto been available. (Times Literary Supplement)

In Games's hands, [Pevsner's] life illuminates the dilemmas of a whole generation, and shines new light on the tragic events of the mid-20th century. (Church Times)

Most revelatory ... Games is well versed in the inflated controversies around the great Sir Nikolaus ... The introduction and appendix to the new book deal entertainingly with these ideological arguments and misunderstandings. (Newsletter of The Victorian Society (Liverpool))

'Having mastered the German-language sources and having undertaken a massive amount of research among surviving records as well as among the recollections of those who knew him, the author has given us the most thorough investigation of the German-born English architectural historian who had such an impact on how we see our built heritage.' (Contemporary Review)

Games looks beneath the surface ... This biography, broad in its sweep and engrossing in its detail, promises to enrich our understanding of a great scholar and a driven, complex man. (Sanford Lakoff)

Pevsner’s story, in the end, is the personification, in one brilliant individual, of fractured Europe in the 20th century. (Sanford Lakoff)

Descripción Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the first biography of Nikolaus Pevsner, the best known and most important architectural historian of the twentieth-century. Nikolaus Pevsner was the best known and most important architectural historian of the twentieth century, admired for dedicating his career to areas of English architecture that had never been considered before. But this English specialist and honorary Englishman, knighted in 1969, only came to England at the age of 31. He had been born and brought up in Germany, didn t imagine that English architecture would become his life s focus, and had no wish to move to England even when forced from teaching by the Nazis. Amplified by analyses of Pevsner s writings and a wealth of personal memories, Pevsner is the first book to explain one of England s first celebrity scholars - a man who, against the backdrop of Hitler and the troubled politics of the 1930s, had to rethink his entire career when England offered him his only refuge.
