The 4th and latest edition of our classic best-selling book, this version is updated with new illustrations and three new chapters to bring it up to date. The success of this book lies with the fact that it takes history rather than aesthetics as a starting point. Risebero recounts the development of architecture in the Western World by looking at architecture as an expression of social and economic conditions. It discusses not only the buildings which were constructed, but how they were built, for what purpose and by whom. This approachable and informative guide to the development of Western architecture is a very readable account of how things have evolved through time, while the text is brought to life through the many line drawings the author has done.
