- "This book is an essential resource for understanding architectural modernism outside its "western" regions and mindsets. Its in-depth discussion and insights will be invaluable to specialists, academics and graduate students. It is also comprehensive enough to be used as a textbook for undergraduate students, and general enough for practitioners and the curious general reader."--P.  of cover.
